Under medium heat, add the milk into a skillet. Split the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape the seeds. Add them to the milk with the empty pod.Bring the milk to a boil, then simmer over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the caster sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks and salt, and beat for 3 minutes.Remove the empty vanilla pod from the skillet after boiling and incorporate a few tablespoons of the boiling milk into the egg mixture.

Then gently add the egg mixture to the milk while beating. Increase the heat slightly and, while stirring, let thicken until a liquid cream forms (between 1 and 2 minutes). 

Do not stir too long, as the cream continues to thicken after it has cooled. Then turn off the heat, pour the cream into a bowl and let cool slightly.
