Just got back from a great staycation with the family for some overnight fun at Key Lime Cove. Now I just got done making some French Vanilla Ice Cream. I new there was eggs in French Vanilla but didn't realize how much. With 4 cups of cream there are 7 or 8 egg yolks in there. Very simple recipe too, and I also realized that French Vanilla ice cream is pretty much egg nog without the nutmeg. If you're interested in the recipe here it is. I never said this was a just a technical blog, just a "techie" blog and this techie just made some ice cream.
7 egg yolks
4 cups of whipping cream
1 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Mix yolks and 1/2 of the sugar in a bowl and mix well.
Take 1c cream and 1/2 of the sugar and slowly bring to a boil in med/large saucepan. When it gets to a boil slowly mix it into the yolk mix. Then transfer back to the pan and cook slowly for about 10 minutes, should be thick but not chunky. Turn off heat and set pan into ice water to cool. After it is cool pour into your ice cream maker and finish accordingly. Enjoy, it is very rich, you can substitute up to 1 1/2 cups of the cream with whole milk to lessen it up some.
Next week I will be updating on my c# progress, stay tuned.
