In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, bring half and half and whipping cream to a simmer
Gradually whisk into egg mixture
Return entire mixture to the saucepan

Be careful not to let it boil
Strain into a clean bowl
Let cool to room temperature
Stir in corn and vanilla
Cover and refrigerate until cold over overnight
Stir cream mixture and transfer to ice cream maker

Suggestion: We've made this ice cream and it tastes great. Next time I plan on pureeing the corn. We found the texture of the cream corn to be a bit much. Don't be turned off by "corn ice cream", it tastes wonderful!   Lesley
