Corn and honey pastel ice

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 cups Fresh corn kernels
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
1 cup Water
⅓ cup Honey

Place the corn and oil in a saucepan and cook over medium heat 4 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent the corn from browning.

Transfer the corn to a blender and add the water and honey. Blend until very smooth.

Return the mixture to the saucepan and bring it to a boil. Reduce the het and simmer, uncovered, stirring frequently, about 15 minutes, until it has a thick, porridgelike consistency.

Freeze for at least 6 hours or place in an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's directions. ****************************** Southwest Indians achieve pastel colors by using dried red or blue corn. You can use fresh white corn and add 2 tablespoons blue cornbeal to the saucepan for a blue ice, or a few fresh raspberries or strawberries for red.
