    I can just smell that honey from your description! And thanks for confirming the whole pine mouth thing for me…I experienced that recently and it is terrible…really blocks you from tasting anything for almost a week! Thanks for the heads up on American Pine Nuts and a resource….I’ve been using walnuts or any other nuts in recipes that call for Pine Nuts because I’m scared to get pine mouth again…..or don’t want to pay for Italian ones.

    Wonderful recipe, Hank! I have heard about pine mouth, but didn’t know a good source, so I appreciate the info. When you make it back to the Fredericksburg area, I’ll share some of our bees’ honey with you. Obviously it’s not desert honey, but everyone does love it. 😉

    Hank, it was nice to hear about Italian stone pine nuts. I started a bunch of trees from seeds about 12 years ago and the little seedlings have become beautiful large pine trees on our family’s farm in the Willamette Valley. Unfortunately they have yet to produce cones. Every year I check them as apparently they must reach some mysterious maturity before starting to produce. Maybe next year I can try your recipe!

    Oh my gosh. The ice cream looks and sounds divine. I need to find some of that honey. I wonder if they ship out to NC!

    I have to say that I disagree with regard to the pine nuts. When I was young, our family lived in Beirut, Lebanon for a time and the pine nuts we’d gather and eat right there under the towering trees were amazing. I compare all others to them and they come up sub-par.

    Happy New Year Hank!

    Wow, no love for best in show… I guess this is not the place for it 🙂

    Wow, thanks for sharing this! I’ve never made ice-cream, but am very keen to try!

    Wonderful – I just bought a bag of pine nuts on impulse the other day. And Mr. Bird owes me a jar of honey.
    Hank, I had the same issue with honey ice cream – either too icy or too globular. I will try the melt-and-rechurn technique if that happens again. Thanks for being the experimenter!

    This was my first attempt at making ice cream. I found a guy selling Utah pine nuts on the side of the road here in San Diego. My thumb is still raw from shelling and peeling all of those nuts (there has got to be an easier way). Used honey from some hives that are out by my turkey hunting spot. This recipe was great. Mild earthy flavors, not overly sweet like store-bought. So far this website and your book have not let me down. Every recipe I try is a keeper.
