Vanilla Ice Cream

There is such a difference between ice cream that you make your self and the ones you buy at the supermarket. I could eat a whole liter of this ice cream if my increasingly growing stomach would´t stop me.

4 egg yolks
250ml full fat milk
250ml heavy cream
100g sugar
1 vanilla pod, sliced down the middle

Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring it slowly to the boil. Place the vanilla pod and the vanilla seeds into the milk and let it infuse for about 15 minutes.

In a bowl, beat and mix the egg yolks and sugar until thick. Carefully remove the vanilla pod from the infused milk. Pour the milk into the bowl with the eggs and stir together. Pour the mixture back into the pan and keep stirring on a low heat until the mixture thickens. Take aside and leave to cool.

Transfer the ice cream mixture to a ice cream maker and let the machine work for about 30 minutes.

Know what you mean - when I was a cook, I made a lot of ice-cream and the vanilla especially is so superior to the bought stuff...It was great having an industrial ice cream maker at my disposal (though it *was* a bitch to clean ;P) I miss it...

about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this web site.
