  • 1 pinch salt

Place ½ cup of cold heavy cream in a small stainless bowl; use the cold cream to bloom the gelatin. Place the rest of the cream into a large pot with the brown sugar and salt. Place the egg yolks into a medium-sized stainless-steel bowl.

Place the mixture into back into the pot and cook on the stove top on low-medium heat.
