100 g milk

a scant pinch of salt

The seeds from a vanilla pod – store vanilla pod in chilli orange  vanilla sugar

Method for the Clotted Cream Ice Cream

If you have the time and inclination to make the custard go for it, alternatively

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Then taste if it isn’t sweet enough add some agave or golden syrup and a little more vanilla to suit you palette.

Leave to infuse for an hour if possible.

Process in an ice cream machine this is a rich, luxurious and the ultimate in luxe vanilla ice cream

Food stylist tip: Make the quenelle using two warmed dessert spoons to make, passing from one to another, the warm ( hand hot ) spoons will give an ultra smooth shine to the quenelle.
