vanilla icecream

I used to think all vanilla was the same until I tried Tahitian vanilla. It makes particularly good ice cream flavouring. This recipe is for designed for an ice cream maker with the freezer bowl completely frozen before use.

  • 1 cup whole milk, well chilled
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream, well chilled
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons pure Tahitian vanilla extract (or standard vanilla if you can’t get Tahitian)

In a medium bowl, whisk the milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Turn ice cream machine on, pour mixture into freezer bowl through ingredient spout and let mix until thickened, about 25 – 30 minutes.
