For the Ice Cream

  • Place the egg yolks in a stand mixer and turn on medium speed.  Slowly pour in your sugar.  Whip for about 4 minutes until light and fluffy. Meanwhile for the ice cream base start by adding all the milk, cream, and vanilla bean. Bring the mixture slowly to a boil and turn off. 
    With a ladle, temper your eggs by ladling a little of the milk mixture into the eggs, until you have about half of your milk mixture mixed in the eggs.
    Then take the mixing bowl with the egg mixture and pour back into the pot of milk mixture using a spatula to scrape the sides.  Turn the heat back on low and stir for about 5 minutes and then turn off. 
    You can let the mixture cool to room temperature if you have the time, or place in a bowl inside a ice bath to cool down faster.  Once the mixture is cool you can then place in your ice cream maker until done.  Then store in a container and place in the freezer.

For the Caramel Sauce

  • Place butter and brown sugar in a pot and place on medium high.  When both sugar and butter has dissolved whisk in the cream.   Cook for 2 minutes and then set aside.
