Steps

  • Combine the cream, milk, and salt in a pot. Slowly bring to a simmer. Turn off the heat and stir in the herbs. Cover and let sit for half an hour to forty five minutes.
  • When the cream mixture tastes herby enough, whisk together the egg yolks and honey. Reheat the cream mixture again till just hot but not simmering.
  • Pour in the cream mixture through a strainer, making sure none of the herbs remain in the liquid or the pot.
  • Whisk everything to combine, then pour it all back into the pot.
  • Slowly bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently to prevent curdling or sticking to the bottom of the pot. After a few minutes, when the custard starts to feel thick, dip in a spoon and run your finger along the back. When the custard holds the line you drew without dripping, it's done.
  • You can chill it and spin it in your ice cream machine, but custards' flavor and texture benefit greatly from an overnight rest. Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
