  2. Cut the vanilla beans in half and remove the seeds with a teaspoon.
  3. Add them to the cream.
  4. Blend with a wand blender for 1 minute, keeping the head below the surface to mitigate any air being introduced.
  5. Pour into a medium sous vide bag and add the two split vanilla pods.
  6. Carefully lay the bag in the vacuum chamber of the AEG PrecisionVac SousVide Vacuum Sealer Drawer, removing as much air as you can.
  7. Seal on high pressure in the AEG PrecisionVac SousVide Vacuum Sealer Drawer.
