How to improve honey ice cream

Check out these ideas to make better ice cream.

  • Chill the container before adding the churned ice cream. Room temperature containers slightly melt the ice cream, causing ice crystals.
  • Once you add the ice cream to the container, add a layer of glad wrap to reduce ice crystal formation.
  • Adjust your freezer to the coldest setting; faster hardening produces the best ice cream.
  • Consider adding a liquor, like vodka, towards the end of churning. It reduces the ice cream’s freezing point and acts as a stabiliser.
  • To make a denser, creamier ice cream add 2-3 extra egg yolks. Discover why eggs are added to ice cream on this resource page about eggs.
