Vanilla Ice Cream
Combine Milk Mix and Heat:
Beat egg yolks and sugar with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. The mixture will lighten in color to a pale yellow. Set aside. In saucepan, combine milk mixture ingredients; add seeds and pod of vanilla bean, to mixture. Over medium heat, bring milk mixture to 175°, stirring often. Use a thermometer to gauge the temperature. Combine when the milk mixture has reached 175°, temper the egg yolk mixture by whisking in 1/2 cup of the hot milk mix. Pour the tempered yolk mixture back into the remaining hot milk mix. Whisk well to evenly distribute yolk mixture. Bring custard to 180° over medium heat, stirring frequently. Lower heat and continue stirring, keeping temperature 180–190°. Stir for 5–7 minutes, checking temp. often. It’s finished when a finger line is left on the back of the spoon when swiped. Strain custard into a bowl; discard vanilla pod. Cool 1 hour at room temp. Cover, touching plastic wrap to custard surface. Chill 4 hours or overnight. Custard must be 40° or lower to set up. Stir mix. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for churning. When finished, it will be soft and fluffy, like soft-serve. Eat it now, freeze in canister 30 minutes, or allow to ripen. Ice cream can be scooped after 24–48 hours. But it tastes just as good for another week. It won’t get icy or lose flavor. *Note: Split bean lengthwise and scrape out seeds.
