Makes 1 1/2 quarts
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 cups whole milk
2 vanilla beans, halved lengthwise
8 large egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Put cream and milk into a medium
saucepan over medium-high heat.
Scrape vanilla seeds from beans with

beans. Heat the mixture until hot (do
not let simmer), about 2 minutes.
Remove mixture from heat; cover, and
let stand 30 minutes.
Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside.
Put yolks, sugar, and salt into the bowl
of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk
attachment. Beat on high speed until
yolk mixture has tripled in volume and
can hold a ribbon on surface for 2
seconds, about 3 minutes.
Reduce speed to medium. Ladle 1 cup
cream mixture in a slow stream into
yolk mixture to temper it. Add another
cup cream mixture; beat to combine.
Transfer mixture to saucepan; cook

Pour custard through a medium-mesh
sieve into a bowl set in ice-water bath.
Let cool completely, stirring often.
Freeze custard in an ice cream maker
according to manufacturer's
instructions. Serve immediately, or
freeze in an airtight plastic container
until ready to serve. If frozen for more
than 4 hours, let ice cream stand at
room temperature 15 to 20 minutes
