Step by step recipe

1 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #1Put 500 ml whole milk milk in a pan, add 100 g caster sugar, split 2 vanillas pod, scrape the inside to get all the black grains, and add them to milk.

Bring to the boil, remove from heat, cover and leave infuse for 15 minutes.
7 min.
2 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #2Put 6 egg yolks in a bowl with 50 g caster sugar, mix with a maryse. 3 min.
3 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #3Pour hot milk onto egg-yolks while mixing.

Clean the pan.
2 min.
4 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #4Pour back the mix in the cleaned pan, through a strainer. 2 min.
5 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #5Put the pan over low heat, and thicken while stirring continuously using a maryse. 10 min.
6 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #6If you use a thermometer, stop when temperature reaches 85°C or 185°F.

The important goal is to avoid mix from boiling, but slowly thicken it.
7 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #7As soon as mixture thickens, remove from heat, add cold 200 ml liquid cream and mix well. 3 min.
8 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #8Cool by placing bowl in cold water, stirring from time to time.

Keep in the fridge covered with plastic film.

Ideally, you should let stay the mixture for several hours, or a night, to let all the flavours and aromas of vanilla do their job.
20 min.
9 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #9Put in the ice cream maker 30 minutes before serving. 20 min.
10 Vanilla ice cream : Photo of step #10Tip: This is not absolutely necessary, but your ice cream will be better, lighter, if you add, 1 or 2 minutes before the end, and egg white roughly beaten in the ice cream maker.

Remarks

Before pouring the mixture in the ice cream maker, you can pour it throught a fine strainer, to remove any remaining small bits.

This recipe is the basis for many other ice-cream recipes like chocolate, pistachio, coffee, etc.
