Vanilla Ice Cream
My homemade vanilla ice cream recipe is perfect for people who enjoy the simpler things in life. Although vanilla beans are expensive, after your first bite, you will understand why. This no-churn recipe takes only three to five minutes to assemble. I like to make it in the morning, so it’ll be ready after dinner.
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Cooking Tips:
Don’t throw away the vanilla bean, store them in your sugar for a vanilla sugar.
The secret is to have a cold bowl and cold beaters. I normally stick them in the freezer while I prep the other ingredients. The cold temperature will help the stiff peaks form faster. To check for stiff peaks, pull the beaters out from cream and peaks should stand up.
How to cut open, scrape and use a vanilla bean?
Hold the vanilla bean on the cutting board. Use the tip of a small knife and split the vanilla bean in half-length wise, holding between your index finger and thumb. Use the back of your knife and scrape both halves of the bean from top to bottom to remove the vanilla seeds, a.k.a. vanilla bean caviar.
