It is fun when you can make your favorite foods in the comfort of your own home, and ice cream is no exception. It is often made with a lot of fattening yet delicious ingredients. Many people are not dessert people, but few can resist a bowl of good vanilla ice cream.

The following are straightforward steps you can follow if you want to make your ice cream at home.

• To make ice cream with regular milk:
• Combine milk, sugar, and vanilla into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
• Use a sizeable spoon to stir the ingredients together.
• Keep stirring until the sugar has dissolved.
• Put the concoction into the ice cream machine.
• If you own an ice cream making device, pour the concoction into it.
• Turn it on and process the mix for around 20 minutes.
• Turn on and process the mixture for about 20 minutes, and then you will come to the part where it becomes thick.
• Pour into an airtight container and place it in your freezer.
• Pour it into a narrow dish if you do not own an ice cream maker.
• Pour the milk, sugar, and vanilla into and blend into a narrow dish that is freezer safe.
• Place this into your freezer and stir the mixture every 2 to 3 hours.
• The texture can be even better by periodically stirring ice cream every couple of hours.
• Freeze overnight.
• The next day it will be ready to eat.
• Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Ice cream is a delightful treat, but you do not always have to go to the store or a shop to get it.

You can make it at home following these easy steps.

• First, make the custard, which is done by splitting a vanilla pod.
• Take out the seeds of the pod.
• Then, add the seeds and pod of the vanilla to milk and cream, bringing it to a boil
• Take off the heat and let it infuse for 10 minutes
• While infusing, take an egg yolk and sugar and whisk it together
• Put the cream mixture back on the heat, almost boiling it.
• Next, whisk in the egg mixture
• Put the custard on the pan and cook on low
• Cook until thick and coating the spoon.
• Strain the custard and let it cool
• Then, transfer and freeze.

Begin by making the custard base. Split the vanilla pod using a small, sharp knife. Scrape out the vanilla seeds. Add the seeds and pod to the milk and cream. Bring the milk, cream and vanilla pod to the boil. Remove from the heat and leave to infuse for at least 10 minutes. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar until pale and fluffy. Reheat the cream mixture until nearly boiling. Strain and whisk into the egg mixture until completely mixed in.

Pour the custard back into the pan and cook on the lowest heat, stirring slowly and continuously for about 10 minutes until thickened. Make sure the spoon touches the bottom of the pan. When done, the custard should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Strain the custard into a bowl and allow to cool, then churn until scoopable. Transfer to a container to freeze before serving.
