Anyone have any good ones? We have not had any sugar in our house in over a year and would like to try making some Icecream with Honey.

Give it a try. I know that when you use honey you use 1/6 as much honey as sugar. Not sure why. My wife made blueberry preserves with honey for the first time and it is better than the ones she made with pure sugar. She used one pint of honey and one pint of sugar compared to 7 pints of sugar. She added the sugar because the berries had a little bit of bitter taste with just honey and she did not know if adding more pure honey would make it too runny. She had to use a different type of pectin for honey.

This is excellent.  Sorry for delayed response, only just noticed the thread.

300ml whipping cream
300ml milk
4 egg yolks
½ vanilla pod and seeds
100ml honey

Whisk yolks, then add cream, milk and vanilla.  Stir over double boiler until custard thickens and thermometer registers 78°C .  Immediately plunge saucepan into an ice bath to cool a little and prevent making scrambled eggs.  Stir in honey while warm and remove vanilla pod.  Cool in fridge for a few hours before freezing.  Either use an ice cream maker or remove and whisk at 30 min intervals until set. This ensures the ice crystals are small and the result smooth.

Jim, I think it's 3/4 as much honey as sugar.

IE: Recipe calls for 1 cup sugar, use 3/4 cup honey and reduce liquid by 1/4 cup.
