Precautions Need To Be Taken While Making Ice Cream
By Travis Charest
Well, making ice creams at home is quite easy. But whether you are making ice cream in a machine or by hand sometimes certain techniques may cause the ice cream to lack in texture, taste and consistency of ice cream. So, to avoid such situation, read these points given below, they are just for your help:
1) You can use alcohol, if you are going to add alcohol to your ice cream, use it frugally. Adding alcohol to the ice cream is just like adding preservative. But use the rule of 1/4 cup to 1 qt. of ice cream because too much alcohol can stop ice cream from freezing properly.
2) Prevent Ice Crystals: To stop ice crystal formation on your ice cream, place wax paper or plastic wrap on top of the mixture before keeping it in a freezer.

3) Prevent Odd Texture: Generally, homemade ice cream does not come out as creamy or as smooth in texture as you would like to eat. Well, the best way to prevent this is to mix all your ingredients in equal amount appropriately. Plus do make sure that you have whipped the ice cream to distribute more air into the mixture. Lastly, if you are using an ice cream maker, adding a touch of alcohol may help create a creamier end result.
