      Heat milk in sauce pan to a simmer.
    2. 2
      Put the lemon zest and vanilla bean in a bowl, and add the hot milk.
    3. 3
      When cool, cover and allow to infuse for about 8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
    4. 4
      Strain the milk into a sauce pan, add half the sugar, and bring to a simmer.
    5. 5
      Whisk the egg yolks with the remaining sugar until combined.
    6. 6
      Gradually dribble the hot milk into the egg yolks, half a cup at a time, whisking to heat the yolks without cooking them.

    8. 8
      Stir in a pinch of salt, and straininto a heatproof bowl set over ice.
    9. 9
      Cover, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
