Next grab 2 whole vanilla beans. With a sharp knife, split them open and scrape out all of that goodness from inside. Put it in the saucepan with the rest.

If you get some fibers from the pods, that is okay. You’ll strain this before finishing the ice cream, so don’t worry.

Bring the contents of the saucepan up to a gentle simmer over medium heat, stirring continually. When the mixture begins to bubble, remove it from the heat. Let it cool for an hour, stirring once in a while.

Pour the mixture into a bowl that has a lid, and refrigerate over night.

The next day, pour the mixture through a sieve into your ice cream maker.
