Frozen Crème Anglaise (aka Vanilla Ice-Cream)

Why I do I love making homemade ice-cream?  Let me count the ways: 1) It is not as sweet as most commercial ice-cream, 2) I can get creative and make the perfect flavour for my dessert, 3) It has no artificial “junk” in it, 4) it is rich and creamy and has a pure flavour.  There, have I convinced you?
