Vanilla seed speckled chocolate chip ice cream anyone?

I received a special order for jars of meringues this week so I had tons of egg yolks leftover. My mother ingeniously thought of using the egg yolks to make custard. She used seeds from vanilla beans she got from a trip to Sri Lanka. When it cooled, the custard was still a little runny and I assumed she didn’t cook it long enough to thicken. I asked her if she minded I make ice cream out of it.

So I went ahead and brought the ice cream machine out and poured the custard in. When the ice cream was almost ready, I grabbed the already opened chocolate chip bag, which I was using for the meringues, and threw in the rest of the chocolate chips in.

And here’s the end result.

Beautifully vanilla seed speckled chocolate chip custard-base ice cream!

Oh and I still have tons of eggs yolks left, we want to give another flavor a try.
