This is, without a doubt, the best ice cream I've ever had. Our family loves to make homemade ice cream when we get together for birthday dinners, and this is our favorite flavor.

Return all to the pan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches at least 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the heat. Cool quickly by placing pan in a bowl of ice water; stir for 2 minutes. Stir in evaporated milk and vanilla. Press waxed paper onto surface of custard. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
