Vanilla Ice Cream



Ingredients:
4 egg yolks 
1/2 pint (250ml) milk 
1/2 pint (250ml) double/heavy cream 
4 oz (100g) sugar or caster sugar 
1 vanilla pod (scored down the middle)

Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring slowly up to boiling point but DO NOT LET IT BOIL. Place the vanilla pod into it and leave to infuse for about 20 minutes.

In a bowl, beat and mix together the egg yolks and sugar until thick. Carefully remove the vanilla pod from the pan of milk and scrape out the seeds into the milk. Pour the milk into the mixture of egg yolks and sugar whilst stirring. Pour the mixture back into the pan and heat gently, stirring until the custard thickens - DO NOT BRING TO THE BOIL OR IT WILL PROBABLY CURDLE.  When you can see a film form over the back of your spoon it's time to remove the saucepan from the heat. Leave to cool. When the custard base is cold stir in the cream. Transfer the whole mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  23. This is a lot more complicated than mine. I normally just take some cream/milk (1:1) and put some vanilla extract and a little bit of sugar in a ziplock bag, then put that bag in a bigger ziplock bag that has ice and salt in it and proceed to shake until ice cream has been made :D
