Storing Ice Cream Tips

How long can you keep ice cream in the freezer?

About a month in a deep freeze, two weeks in a fridge freezer. It's not as crystals will form after that time. If I have ice cream left I will put it in a smaller container so there is not the air inside the box that helps to form the crystals. If it is homemade ice cream, then a few days is all you have to keep it, so use it up quickly.

Not long if I'm around. Sorry, I just had to inject a little humor.

Ice cream retains its texture and quality best at 0 degrees F; put a thermometer in your freezer and adjust the setting accordingly.


Ice cream picks up freezer odors easily, so store the carton in a sealed plastic bag.

To soften a quart of ice cream for serving, put the carton in a microwave on DEFROST for 40 seconds.

Be aware that if you replace ice cream with ice milk or sherbet, you'll be eating less butterfat but consuming more sugar.
