What you will need to makeĀ Roasted Apricot Honey Ice Cream

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup high-quality honey
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 5 ripe apricots, halved and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds


  1. Fill a large bowl with ice cubes and place a medium bowl on top of the ice. Add the heavy cream and honey to the medium bowl and place a fine mesh sieve over top. In a medium sauce pan, warm the milk, sugar and salt just until steam rises from it. In a small bowl, gently whisk the egg yolks. Slowly add a bit of the warm milk mixture, whisking constantly. Continue doing this until about half the milk mixture has been incorporated into the eggs. Then slowly pour the egg mixture back into the remaining milk in the pan, whisking constantly.
  2. Heat mixture over low heat, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula. Continue cooking until the mixture has thickened and coats the spatula. Pour the custard through the sieve, into the honey cream mixture. Stir to combine and continue stirring until mixture has cooled. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place apricots, skin side down on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Baking in preheated oven for 20 minutes. At the 10 minute mark, sprinkle the almonds onto the pan and continue baking for the remaining 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  4. Churn refrigerated ice cream base in an ice cream maker according to manufacturers instructions. Coarsely chop the cooled apricots. After churning, scoop 1/3 of the ice cream into a freezer-safe container. Top with 1/3 of the roasted apricots and almonds. Top with half the remaining ice cream. Add 1/2 the remaining apricots and almonds. Top with remaining ice cream and then remaining apricots and almonds.
