Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place half and half in jar with vanilla beans and pods, shake, and let sit for at least 30 minutes.
  • In heavy bottom pan over medium low heat add half and half, vanilla beans and pods (or vanilla extract), and sugar. Stir until warmed. DO not let stick to bottom of pan or scortch. Add cornstartch to milk in jar and shake until mixed. Add to half and half mixture.
  • Once egg yolks beaten, stir yolks continuously while slowly adding approx. one third mixture from heated pan. Do not let mixture cook eggs...keep beating. Add egg mixture back in to pan. Stir and cook until mixture coats back of spoon.
  • Strain in to bowl to remove any clots, vanilla beans, pods for smooth custard. You will still have vanilla "specks".
  • Place plastic wrap directly on custard (to prevent custard from getting "film" on top) and chill.
  • Note: Once custard is strained you can use it for multiple purposes like making banana pudding, etc. Use your imagination. Pictured I have poured over fresh blueberries and topped with glazed fresh cherries.
