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.

As soon as the mixture is ready, take off the heat, add 100 g Pistachio powder or paste, mix well, add 200 ml liquid cream and mix again.

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.
