Heat the milk in a small saucepan until hot, but not boiling.

Beat the sugar and eggs in a jug with a whisk and slowly pour the hot milk into the egg mixture, stirring all the time.

Pour the mixture into the saucepan and heat gently, without boiling, stirring constantly until it thickens slightly and coats the back of a spoon.

Cool down to room temperature and then add the cream and vanilla and mix.

Cool in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours before preparing in the ice-cream maker according to the ice-cream maker instructions.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
