For the vanilla ice cream
- 1 Pink Lady® apple
- 1 half lemon
- 1 vanilla pod
- 500 ml whole milk
- 4 egg yolks
- 125 g sugar
- Slit the vanilla pod in half lengthwise.
- Bring the milk to a boil with the vanilla.
- Beat the yolks with the sugar until the mixture whitens.
- Add a little hot milk, stir and then pour in the rest of the milk.
- Pour the mixture into a clean saucepan and simmer. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon. When the cream sticks to the spoon, remove from heat. Filter the mixture using a chinois strainer. Place the recipient in a double boiler with cold water and ice cubes, then place the cream in the fridge to cool.
- Churn the cream until you obtain a soft, smooth ice cream, for about 25 minutes depending on the model of your machine.
- Dice the apple into small cubes, without removing the skin, and pour a little lemon juice over the cubes to prevent them from turning brown.
- Heat them gently in a frying pan with the remaining sugar. Stir regularly. Make sure the skin does not colour too much, so it stays a pretty pink! Let cool at room temperature and then chill in the fridge.
