The scraped seeds from one vanilla pod or 2 tsp good quality vanilla extract
Rum or Brandy, optional and up to you how much
Blend all the ingredients together until totally smooth. Some bullet-blenders should only be used on full blast for 2 minutes at a time, if this is yours, blend, then give the blender a little rest, then go again, so you don’t explode the motor.
If you fancy it, add the rum or brandy to taste. The chestnut custard can be served cold or hot.
