Vanilla ice cream

Time 1 hour
Yields Serves 6
Vanilla ice cream
1

Bring the cream, milk, sugar, salt and vanilla bean to a boil in a medium saucepan.

2

Meanwhile, whisk the yolks together.

3

Once the cream mixture has come to a rolling boil, turn off the heat. Take 1 cup of the hot cream mixture and stream it slowly into the yolks, whisking.

4

Slowly pour the egg-cream mixture back into the saucepan. Whisk. Turn the flame on low and cook until the base thickens slightly, about 2 to 3 minutes. Be careful not to overcook, as the mixture will curdle.

5

Strain through a fine-mesh strainer and chill for 2 to 3 hours or overnight.
