Ingredients for 6
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup ultrafine sugar
5 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
Pinch kosher salt
Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 180°F (82°C).
In a blender or food processor, puree all ingredients until smooth and frothy, about 30 seconds.
Transfer mixture to a large zipper lock bag. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique and place in the water bath. Set the timer for 1 hour. Several times throughout the cooking process, agitate the bag to prevent clumps from forming.
When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Transfer to an ice bath to cool. Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
