Every Thursday on the Good Food Blog we share a recipe from our archives.
2 bottles of good cream
6 yolks of eggs
Stick of vanilla
Mix the yolks and sugar. Put the cream on a fire in a casserole, first putting in a stick of vanilla.
When near boiling take it off and pour it gently into the mixture of eggs & sugar. Stir it well.
Put it on the fire again stirring it thoroughly with a spoon to prevent it’s sticking to the casserole. When near boiling take it off and strain it thro’ a towel.
Put it in the Sabottiere. Then set it in ice an hour before it is to be served. Put into the ice a handful of salt. Put salt on the coverlid of the Sabottiere & cover the whole with ice. Leave it still half a quarter of an hour.
Then turn the Sabottiere in the ice for 10 minutes.
Open it to loosen with a spatula the ice from the inner sides of the Sabottiere. Shut it and replace it in the ice.
Open it from time to time to detach the ice from the sides. When well taken (prise) stir it well with the spatula.
Put it in moulds, justling it well down on the knee. Then put the mould into the same bucket of ice. Leave it there to the moment of serving it.
To withdraw it, immerse the mould in warm water, turning it well till it will come out and turn it into a plate.
