Honey Graham Crackers
- Preheat oven to 350 F.

- Fork all the crackers. Chill for 15 minutes, then bake 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown throughout and firm. Allow to cool completely.
- Whisk milk, salt, sugar, and vanilla seeds and beanpod in stainless saucepan; heat on medium until just below simmer.
- Remove from heat and let steep for 10 minutes.
- Whisk cream and Sue Bee Honey in large bowl set in an ice bath; set a strainer over bowl.
- Whisk egg yolks until smooth in small bowl. Slowly temper the yolks with the hot milk mixture and pour back into saucepan. Stir constantly with wooden spoon on medium-low until mixture coats the spoon.
- Strain immediately into honey cream mixture and stir to incorporate. Chill for 4 hours and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions: at last minute stir in chopped unshaped graham crackers. Don't let ice cream get completely hardened.
