DIRECTIONS

  • Reserve 3 tablespoons of the milk. Place the remaining milk and vanilla pod in a saucepan. Bring almost to the boil. Remove from the heat and leave to stand for 15 minutes to allow the vanilla to infuse the milk.
  • Place the egg yolks, sugar and reserved milk in a bowl. Beat until thick and creamy. Remove the vanilla pod from the milk and pour the milk on to the egg mixture. Strain the mixture into a heavy based saucepan and cook, stirring, until the custard thinly coats the back of a spoon and is about the thickness of single cream. Pour into a cold jug. Serve hot or cold. The sauce thickens on cooling.
