    Making Ice Cream

    Ice cream has always been a great favorite with both children and adults. It is light and refreshing and has a wonderful creamy texture. Ice cream can be made in a great variety of flavors, from old favorites such as strawberry and chocolate to new ones such as honey and cashew nuts. Ice creams are also perfect by utilizing seasoned fruits.

    Ice cream is considered as one of the most popular desserts around the world.

    In India, there are many ice cream parlors and a growing number of Indian dairy farms are producing their own ice cream which they supply to farm shops, tea rooms, and other retail outlets.

    Perhaps the biggest growth in interest in ice cream, however, is the number of people who want to make their own homemade ice cream. This is where ice cream recipes are brilliant and once you start to make your own ice cream, it is easy to become addicted!

    You begin to realize just how much fun it is to make your own ice cream from scratch, how many flavors you can conjure up, and how many different ways there are to serve it – from sundaes to sandwiches!

    Ice Cream Making Principles

    The principle of making ice cream is the same as for sorbet: a solution containing a specific amount of sugar is frozen against the inside of a metal bowl.

    It is important that the amount of sugar is correct since it is the sugar density that determines the freezing capacity of the solution.

    Too much sugar and the ice cream solution will not freeze. Insufficient sugar and it will freeze solidly like ice.  As the solution i.e. fine egg custard,  freezes into tiny crystals against the metal bowl, they are stirred back into the unfrozen custard until it thickens gradually into a smooth cream.

    Ice Cream Making Tips

    1. If you are investing in an electric ice cream maker, spend as much as you can afford.
    2. A light sugar syrup freezes into hard ice; a syrup containing too much sugar does not freeze at all. Therefore, it is important to use the correct amount of sugar so that ice cream will freeze into a soft consistency.
    3. Alcohol does not freeze, so do not be tempted to add more than is stated in a recipe.
    4. When using acidic fruits, avoid contact with bare metals other than stainless steel and those coated with enamel.
    5. Stainless steel and enamel bowls are good conductors of heat and cold, and therefore hasten the freezing of ices and sorbets.  Plastic and glass bowls have the opposite effects.
    6. If using an electric ice cream maker, allow 25-40 minutes to freeze 1-liter ice cream, depending on the model.
    7. Ices should be stored in covered plastic containers in the ice-making compartment of the refrigerator.  If stored in the deep freeze, they will harden beyond use.
    8. If ices and sorbet become too hard to serve, leave them at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before serving.
    9. Homemade ices and sorbets are best eaten on the day they are made, or soon after, as they have a tendency to harden if kept for longer length of time.
    10. If you need to transport ice cream or sorbet any distance, wrap the container first in a wet newspaper and pack with plenty of ice to keep it firm.
