  2. My Dream Vanilla Bean Pastry Cream

    Sat, 3 Dec 2016

    And by dream, I mean nightmare. I don’t test recipes. There is nothing in my contract that requires me to only post successful videos, and as you longtime viewers know, I do enjoy sharing the occasional flop, but this new and improved, vanilla bean pastry cream was not a one-take affair. I’ve wanted to update our old crème patisserie recipe for a while, and long story short, I became obsessed, and ended up suffering through seven non-perfect versions before I was finally satisfied. The key to a great pastry cream is using the minimum of starch. You need enough so the cream holds a shape, but not so much it interferes with the flavor. I found flour-based pastry creams easy to work with, but they have more of a pasty mouthfeel that gets in the way of the vanilla . That’s why this version is all corn starch, which we need less of to do the same job. Just be careful not to keep cooking it once it has thickened, otherwise you may compromise its thickening powers. With the holidays, and their associated fancy desserts, right around the corner, what better time to work on your pastry cream game? So whether it’s for Napoleons, pies, tarts, or cakes, I really hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy! Makes about 3 cups: 1 large whole egg 2 large egg yolks 1 teaspoon kosher salt (1/2 teaspoon fine table salt) 1/2 cup granulated white sugar 1/4 cup corn starch 2 cups whole milk 1 vanilla bean , seeded, plus pure vanilla extract if needed Tip : Save the scraped pods, and stick them in your sugar container for lovely, vanilla -scented sugar! 4 tablespoons cold butter, cubed

    and today we are making something sweet indeed in the kitchen, Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream , and I promised once you see how easy it is and so delicious to make your own homemade ice cream, you will not be going back to store-bought anytime soon. So, let's get started. I have our ingredients all laid out here. We're going to use 3 cups of heavy whipping cream, 2 cups of half and half or light cream-- I'm using half and half today, 1 (14 ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk, which has been chilled and 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract . So really simple, we're just going to mix those together in a large bowl here. Now please note, if you want it to turn this into chocolate ice cream, at this point you would just add 1 cup of chocolate-flavored syrup, so you could certainly switch them that way. Just note that it won't harden as much as this will and, you know, you'll have that extra liquid so it will take longer. It might be a little bit more soft than this vanilla ice cream would. Now, this condensed milk is almost like-- almost like [unk], so you really want to have something to help move it
