Homemade Vanilla Ice cream with Fruits and Nuts

Here in Seattle for last couple days we had a grogerous sunshine and thought let me try homemade vanilla ice cream. For dressing added some starwberries,pears,organes and nuts with chocolate syrup which looks similar to Mangalore Gadbag ice cream.

2 cups half-and-half milk
5 large egg yolks
2/3 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 vanilla bean or 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Half and Half cream is a mixture of cream and whole milk.
In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring the half-and-half and the vanilla bean to the boiling (the milk begins to foam up). Remove from heat, take out the vanilla bean and scrape the seeds from the bean with the back of a knife, and mix the seeds back into the half-and-half.

Meanwhile in a stainless steel bowl beat the egg yolks and sugar until fluffy.Gradually pour the scalding half-and-half into the whipped egg yolk mixture, keep whisking constantly so eggs yolks don't curdle. If any lumps do form, strain the mixture first before heating.
Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, cook until the custard thickens enough that it coats the back of a spoon.
Immediately remove the custard from the heat and continue to stir the custard for a few minutes so it does not overcook.Cover and let cool to room temperature and then refrigerate the custard until it is completely cold  preferably overnight.
Transfer the cold custard to the chilled container of your ice cream machine or blend it for a min and transfer the ice cream to a chilled container and store in the freezer for 24 hours.

Sunshine in Seattle, that's good to hear. It's been such a cold Winter everywhere, nice to feel the warmth for a bit! :)
