How to make the Ultimate Vanilla Ice Cream. I cannot put into words the sensation of eating this amazing ice cream delight. As soon as the ice cream machine finishes its churning cycle, it’s common practice to try a little right? I picked up a spoon, scooped a little and delicately put it on my tongue. Wow! It was like the local church bell rang gathering the entire village of taste buds to party in my mouth. It’s only vanilla ice cream I know, yet despite its simplicity, it’s one of the best ice creams you will ever taste.
The secret is simply to buy the best ingredients you can afford. No skim milk, no low fat rubbish, but real full cream milk. Same with the cream, get the best heavy or thickened cream you can get your hands on. I used farm fresh eggs which are what we call pastured eggs. They’re not jut free range, but laid from free roaming happy chickens that cluck around a field. For the vanilla, same deal, use only the real vanilla bean. Nothing beats it, forget any essences or extracts.
When you’re ready to eat it, don’t go for a huge amount, have one or two scoops, no more. No need for toppings, sprinkles or fruits. This is a rich delicacy so you want to savour it on its own and very slowly. For this recipe, you will need an ice cream maker, there’s plenty of choices, some are quite affordable. So enjoy this ultimate vanilla ice cream and make it today. It’s rich, it’s delicate and it’s delicious.
