DIRECTIONS

  • Split the vanilla bean and scrape the seeds into a saucepan.
  • Add the cream, milk, 4 oz. of the sugar, the vanilla pod and the salt. Bring this to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat, cover, and allow it to sit for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, beat the eggs with the remaining sugar until combined.
  • Temper the eggs with the hot cream mixture, then add the eggs to the saucepan.
  • Cook until the mixture coats a spoon, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat, strain and chill overnight (at least 8 hours).
  • Process the mixture in an ice cream maker. Serve immediately or transfer to the freezer for a firmer texture.
