The term “French vanilla” technically describes a particular type of custard base for vanilla ice cream. This custard base is associated with a strong vanilla flavor and odor, a rich golden color, and small flecks of vanilla beans. This custard is made by cooking egg yolks, cream, and sugar together with crushed vanilla pods and vanilla flavoring. The result is a very rich custard with a strong yellow color, thanks to the egg yolks, and small black flecks from the crushed vanilla pods. This custard has an intense flavor and aroma, and a creamy, rich texture.
