Here is a delicious recipe we enjoy. We like topping this ice cream with chocolate chips, coconut, and marshmallows. If you’re using vanilla extract, stir it into the cream mixture after the ice-water bath.”

2 quarts heavy whipping cream
1 cup sugar
1 vanilla bean or 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
6 egg yolks, lightly beaten

In a large heavy saucepan, combine cream and sugar. Split vanilla bean in half lengthwise. With a sharp knife, scrape seeds into pan; add bean. Heat cream mixture over medium heat until bubbles form around side of pan, stirring to dissolve sugar. In a bowl, whisk a small amount of the hot mixture into egg yolks. Return all to pan, whisking constantly. Cook over low heat until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon and temperature reaches 160; stirring constantly but gently. Do not boil. Immediately transfer to a bowl. Place bowl in a ice-water bath for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Discard vanilla bean. Press waxed paper onto surface of custard. Refrigerate until cold. Fill cylinder of ice cream freezer two-thirds full; freeze according to the manufacture’s directions. (Refrigerate remaining mixture until ready to freeze.) When ice cream is frozen, transfer to a freezer container; freeze for 4-6 hours before serving. Repeat with remaining mixture.
