At some point, vanilla became synonymous with 'basic' but we think it's anything but. It takes 14 months from flowering to finishing the curing process to get what we know as a vanilla bean. And that process is nothing short of an artform.
When the fruit is picked fresh off the plant, it does not carry the vanilla scent and flavor that has become so normal to us. It comes through a curing process that takes at least two months.
So, you may see vanilla ice cream as a very basic recipe but an excellent vanilla ice cream has the power to transform any dessert and take it from merely good to spectacular. This recipe will work with your standard ice cream maker.
