How to Make It

Step 1

Combine half-and-half and whipping cream in a stainless steel saucepan. Cook over medium heat just until mixture begins to boil.

Step 2

Whisk together yolks and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Gradually whisk hot cream mixture into yolk mixture, and pour back into saucepan.

Step 3

Cook over low heat (do not boil), stirring constantly, until custard begins to thicken and coats back of a spoon. Strain into a metal bowl; place bowl in an ice-water bath. Cool completely, stirring occasionally.

Pour mixture into freezer container of a 5-quart hand-turned or electric freezer. Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
