This was my first experience making a custard based vanilla ice cream recipe and I must say I was very pleased with the results. I took a hint from comments on the 'eggy-ness' though, and only used 3 egg yolks. I could absolutely taste them, so can only imagine what it would be like with all 10, lol. It seems to me the amount of yolks has more to do with the taste than anything else as it turned out great, texture-wise, despite only using 3. Rich, smooth and "very vanilla" even without the extract, which I forgot to add in. I would just add a good pinch of salt next time, or perhaps reduce the sugar to 1 cup. I did not strain the mixture as it didn't seem to need it, plus it looks appealing with the vanilla seeds in there. I also swirled in a 1/4 cup of raspberry puree when finished. Absolutely amazing!
