½ piece Vanilla Bean

2 ½ cups Heavy Cream

¾ cup Egg Yolks

9 ounces Sugar


In a pot add milk, cream and split and scraped half of vanilla bean and bring to a boil.

Whisk egg yolks and sugar together, add third of hot milk/cream mixture, whisk together, pour yolks then back with rest of the milk/cream mixture and on low heat cook until just starting to thicken, keep on stirring well.

Take off and strain into clean container, over ice bath get mixture cold.
