Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, French-Style: There are primarily two methods in making ice cream. One is called Philadelphia-style and only requires mixing together your cream and sugar with another flavoring, then dumping into the ice cream maker. The other (my favorite) is called French-style and includes cooking up a custard base to give the ice cream a richer taste and creamier texture. Today, I’m sharing with you the French-style method.
In one word...Awesome! Made this today!! Wow. But give yourself at least 6 hours for freezing, 4 hours is just not enough. Also, line your bread pan with plastic wrap before you pour, keeps the metal taste away! Next trying it with fruit.
