Pour the mixture back into the saucepan on very low heat and leave to thicken, stirring constantly.

This should reach its ideal texture at 181°F (83°C) (use an electronic thermometer if you can) or simply follow the method for real custard sauce (crème anglaise), if you prefer.

Stage 5 - 3 min.

Cool by standing the saucepan in cold water and stir frequently.

Leave to wait in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Stage 6 - 30 min.

Remarks

If you look at the ingredients of commercially available pistachio ice cream, you will often find almond or bitter almond extract listed - a travesty of the real thing.
