Since 4th of July is right around the corner, I decided to make some vanilla ice cream. I have never been let down before with Allrecipes.com, so I thought I would search their site for this. The ice cream turned out fabulous! I did not follow the directions to a T. I did read the rest of the directions and made it my own. I had to double the recipe (since we have a lot of people coming over tomorrow.) I used 2 quarts of HnH, 1 1/2 quarts of Heavy cream, half a cup of milk, 2 cups of sugar, 3 REAL vanilla bean pods, 2 small pinches of kosher salt and two cap fulls of REAL vanilla extract. I melted the sugar in the pot with the creams and bean pods till slightly warm. I took 4 large egg yolks and gradually mixed them into the mixture. I turned the heat off and then I let it steep for about 10 minutes (to get the flavor of the vanilla to come out.) I then put the mixture in the ice cream machines and it came out PERFECT!!! It's creamy SUPER vanillay and rich. It's just what I wanted!!
