Homemade vanilla ice cream recipe
Ingredients:1 cup whole milk ¾ cup caster (superfine) sugar 1 vanilla bean Pinch of salt 2 cups cream 6 egg yolks 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
The recipe is easy but there are a lot of steps. Be sure to read the entire recipe and get organized before you start. The first thing I will tell you is, do not substitute any of the ingredients, especially the caster sugar. Caster sugar is very a very fine sugar and it does make a different. Use the highest fat heavy cream you can find.
Place the whole milk, sugar and salt in a small saucepan. Split the vanilla bean and scrape out the seed and add them to the milk. I reuse the vanilla bean pod by placing it into my bottle of pure vanilla extract or us it to make vanilla sugar.
Place the saucepan over high heat and bring the mil mixture to just under a boil. Remove from heat, cover the pot, set aside to infuse for an hour.
