I make a lot of ice cream and it is really yummy, but it is always hard to scoop out of the plastic container therefore sometimes splitting the container. I know there is a secret to soft ice cream, so could anyone tell me how to make my ice cream soft?

For soft ice cream like Dairy Queen:

Soak 2 envelopes Knox gelatin in 1/2 cup cold water. Heat 2 cups milk just to boiling point. Remove from heat, add gelatin. Add 2 cups sugar, 2 t vanilla, 1 t salt. Cool mixture, then add 2 cups cream. Freeze in electric 1 gallon ice cream maker. It will only be half full, but will whip up and expand to make 1 gallon. The gelatin is the key to the softness.

From the early 1950's. It doesn't require cooking.



Add instant pudding to milk and beat in egg, adding the powdered sugar a little at a time to blend together. Add in whipping cream and half and half, mixing all the time. Stir in vanilla. Pour into freezer can that has been chilled (just stick it empty,into the refrigerator or freezer for a few hours). Follow ice cream freezer directions. Use rock salt and plenty of ice in layers to the top of the freezer. Be sure NOT to get salt in the top of the freezer.

After the ice cream is firm, take out the paddle, replace the lid , cover with ice and layers of newspapers and dish towels for an hour or two to harden. You can put left overs in freezer containers. Enjoy!

Servings: Depends on how big they are and how many want "seconds".

Raspberry Butter-milk sherbert

2 cups fruit fresh or frozen

1 cup sugar

2 cups buttermilk

1 tsp vanilla extact

Mix together in blender or food processor

The original recipe came from Southern Living Mag about a million years ago. I use powdered buttermilk because I never have any fresh in my fridge. We use this in a cruisanart ice cream maker so I don't know how it will work in anything else. Anne from North Carolina

My favorite is peach ice cream. I have one of those 20 dollar machines from Walmart and have made it twice. HOWEVER, you have to buy a lot of rock salt and ice to get it going. I have a gift certificate to William Sonoma that I am going to use to buy this freezer ball contraption that you store in the freezer and then when ready put your ingrediants in it and makes it quickly.

Purchase an electric icecream machine that comes with gel - filled freezable bowls. (I have one made by Cuisinart. About $40.oo American.) Comes with recipes. You just pre-freeze your bowl. Mix together ingredients, dump mixture into frozen bowl and turn on machine. 20 mins. later you have homemade icecream! (No need for ice or rock salt, or churning.) SUPER EASY! SUPER YUMMY!!!

How long does it take to make homemade ice cream?

We make ice cream in our electric ice crean maker a lot. It usually takes around twenty minutes for the ice cream to make. It is usually the right consistancy, but will get firmer if kept cold in the ice water (water that forms as ice melts).
