I made this ice cream a couple of weeks ago and it has a very nice flavor AND texture! It's not super hard when you take it out of the freezer like some other recipes I've tried from this site. I used half and half instead of milk because I had some on hand from all the holiday cooking. It was a kinda sweet, but I like sweet. I usually top my vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup, but that may have put me into a sugar coma, so I opted for sliced banana and it was great. Nice recipe and even though I don't like "making" ice creams where you have to temper the eggs, I will definitely make this again. I also added about 2 tsp vanilla extract in addition to the vanilla bean after tasting the batter it didn't seem to be enough flavor - plus I like the extra vanilla flavoring. UPDATE: I said I made this a couple of weeks ago, I still have some left and it's still fabulous! Someone recently asked how long homemade ice cream would keep, this one has kept very well for a little over 3 weeks and counting.
