Preparation / Directions:
To make the ice cream, split and scrape the seeds of the vanilla bean into the sugar and use your fingers to spread the seeds throughout. Bring milk, cream, and half of the sugar to a boil. Whisk the rest of the sugar with the yolks. Temper the yolks by gradually whisking in about 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture. Whisk the tempered yolks back into the remaining cream and strain through a fine sieve or chinois. Chill. Process the ice cream in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. When done, fold the grape jelly into the ice cream.
