Cooking Instructions for Rosemary Simpson's Sous Vide Vanilla Ice Cream Base

For the Sous Vide Vanilla Ice Cream Base

Prepare water bath: 150°F (65.6°C).

Whisk the 4 egg yolks with vanilla extract.

Sift sugar, salt and Avacream stabilizer together into the 4 egg yolks, blend thoroughly using a whisk or blender.

Add the milk and cream and mix well to fully incorporate.

Put the base in the sous vide bag or mason jar and sous vide at 150°F (65.6°C) for 2 hours.

Remove the mixture from the sous vide bath and leave it on the counter to cool or plunge into an ice bath.

Refrigerate overnight to chill and rest and churn it the next day.

Most ice creams take 20-25 minutes to churn and will have a soft-serve consistency and then must be frozen.
