Outstanding recipe. I actually overcooked it a little and was worried as I saw curdling. I read Nigella's instructions to use an immersion blender (not making it foamy) and it made it smooth so I didn't have to start over and throw out expensive ingredients. It made one pint of vanilla and one pint of vanilla that I turned into Almond Joy with chopped up candy bars, chocolate chips and coconut. (I did this as the second pint wasn't going to be full.) Really great, easy recipe. Delicious.
