Preparation for the cream
- In a medium saucepan, heat milk, Mango pulp, and vanilla bean over low heat. Immediately turn off the heat and set it aside to infuse for 15 minutes.
- In a bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add the cornstarch and beat vigorously until smooth. Whisk in 1/4 cup of the hot milk mixture until just incorporated.
- Whisk in remaining hot milk mixture, reserving saucepan. Pour the mixture through a strainer back into the saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and simmering. Remove from heat and add the butter.
- Let cool slightly. Cover with plastic wrap, lightly pressing the plastic against the surface to prevent a skin from forming.
- Chill at least 2 hours or until ready to serve. Custard can be made up to 24 hours in advance. Refrigerate up to 1 hour before using. I whipped up some cream and folded it into my cold custard to lighten up the filling, this is now technically called Ambassador Cream
for the basket
