Almond Ice Milk

1 quart whole milk
2/3 cup honey
1/3 cup ground blanched almonds
1/2 tsp pure almond extract

In a medium sauce pan, bring the milk and honey to a simmer over moderate heat, stirring to dissolve the honey, about 4 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the ground blanched almonds and the almond extract until completely combined. Fill a large bowl with water and ice. Place a medium bowl in the ice bath. Strain the almond milk through a fine mesh sieve into the medium bowland let cool completely, stirring occasionally. Transfer the chilled almond milk to an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
