Recipe For Homemade Ice Cream: Crunchy Honeycomb

5 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 pint (500ml) whipping cream
1 tin (small) of condensed milk
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Method: Place the syrup and sugar together in a pan and heat gently to melt them together. When melted, boil for about 3 minutes - the mixture should become a dark, golden color. Take the pan off the heat and stir the bicarbonate of soda into the mixture, creating a froth as you do so. Pour the mixture straight away onto a greased, baking tray and leave it to cool and set. Once the honeycomb is set, take a separate mixing bowl and whip the cream until it's thick (not stiff), then stir in the condensed milk.

Take the honeycomb and crush it into small pieces before adding to the cream and condensed milk mixture. Stir until fully blended in. Transfer the complete mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions. Serves 6-8

Honeycomb ice cream is one of the more unusual ice cream flavors. Another one of my favorites is rhubarb custard ice cream. Just like honeycomb was a sweet treat I remember from childhood, so it was with rhubarb and custard. Stewed rhubarb fresh from the garden with homemade custard was a popular dessert in my family home. So my ice cream recipe is in honor of that :-) Here is the recipe.which I hope you will enjoy.
