1. Scrape the vanilla pod to remove all the pulp and place both the pod and pulp into a hot pan with the cream and sugar.

2. Bring the cream to the boil ensuring it does not boil over or reduce.

3. Remove the pan from the heat, squeeze the residual water out of the gelatine and whisk it into the cream.
