  1. Combine all ingredients (including the bean and its pulp) in a large saucepan and place over medium heat; attach a thermometer (candy or frying) to inside of pan.
  2. Stirring occasionally, bring mixture to 170° F; remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Remove the bean and pulp and discard; pour remaining mixture into lidded container and refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to mature.
  4. Freeze mixture in ice cream freezer according to units instructions; mixture will not freeze hard in machine.
  5. Once the volume has increased by ½ to ¾ times its original volume, and reached a soft consistency, spoon mixture back into lidded container and harden in freezer for at least an hr before serving.
baking tipIf not using a thermometer, bring mixture just barely to a simmer, and as soon as you see a bubble hit the surface, remove it from heat. DO NOT LET IT BOIL. You can add your favorite cookie, candy or flavoring for different varieties. Top with Ideal® whipped topping.
