Your ice cream will be a soft set, even a bit softer than regular soft-serve. I like this texture, but if you want it a bit thicker, use more whipping cream than the recipe calls for. You can also freeze any leftovers, making it a bit icy, which is how my husband, Chris, enjoys it. Be sure to freeze it in a different container, not the canister. I used to freeze leftover ice cream in the canister, and this is how I learned my lesson. One time, Chris used knife or some other sharp object to dig out the remaining ice cream. He washed the canister and put it back in the churn for storage. The next time I made ice cream, when we dipped it out, ready for cold, sweet, creamy goodness, we ended up with a mouthful of a salty mess instead!
So, for your next get-together, try your hand at homemade ice cream. It’s sure to be a hit at any gathering!
