Ice Cream
Ingredients

1 1/2 cups Honey
1 cup Egg yolks
2 cups Heavy cream
1 tbs Kosher salt
Blackberry jam as needed

Directions
1. Mix corn and honey and reserve for at least 30 minutes, so corn starts to release its liquid. Place mixture in a blender and purée; then drain liquid, discarding solids. (It should yield 1 quart of liquid, if it is slightly shy, add heavy cream to make up difference.)
2. Heat corn and honey mixture in a saucepan. Meanwhile whisk egg yolks, remaining 2 cups of cream and salt. Add yolks to heated corn liquid and stir until mixture is thickened and has come to 180 degrees F.
3. Chill ice cream base, preferably overnight and process in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions. When removing ice cream from machine, layer in container with blackberry jam. Swirl into ice cream with spatula. Reserve, frozen.
