Pacojet Vanilla Ice cream

Preparation time : 6 hours + 24 hours. Yield: 6 pacojet containers


  • 12g stabilizer
  • 12g trimoline
  • 40g milk powder
  • 500g vanilla sugar
  • 365g pasteurised egg yolk
  • 5 waxy vanilla pods
  • 800g whipping cream
  • 1900g Cornish farm or Jersey milk


Combine the milk, cream, milk powder, trimoline and vanilla (pods and seeds), and heat in a heavy based pot to 80°c for 3 minutes
Whilst heating the milk mixture place the pasteurised yolks, stabilizer and vanilla sugar into a kitchenaid bowl and whisk at full speed for 6 minutes. This is important as it helps to break down the protein and gives your finished ice cream its velvet texture. * Vanilla sugar can be made weeks in advance my saving your old empty pods and packing them in caster sugar. Store this in an air tight jar or vac pac bag.
Once the egg is whipped and the milk heated you can combine the two. Mix thoroughly and allow to cool to room temperature.
Once cool pass mixture through a chinois evenly into 6 pacojet containers. Place the containers into the fridge to set for 4 hours
After 4 hours in the fridge the ice cream can be put in the freezer for 24 hours. After this time it is ready to be churned. This ice cream will hold its texture for about 6 hours so once churned you shouldn't need to re-churn it midway through service
