Beeswax Ice Cream

"Necessity is the mother of invention," as the English proverb says, and this recipe was quite the invention that came from one part necessity and another part curiosity. The Culinary Vegetable Institute, led by Jamie Simpson, was hosting an event on Air Force One and had no freezers for the desserts. As a nod to aviation on the farm and a potential disaster cleverly avoided, they created an ice cream that is stable at higher temperatures, incredibly aromatic and unarguably delicious. An homage to the amazing honeybee.
