4 egg yolks
250ml full fat milk
250ml heavy cream
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.
