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.

When making ice cream with heavy whipping cream how do I get rid of the waxy or buttery stuff. It is very unpleasant. The taste is great, but the waxy stuff isn't.

I would need a little more info as there are lots of variables. So if you are using an old fashioned recipe that calls for a hand crank device and you are using a machine/maker, you could be over churning and getting butter.

If you are using a recipe that calls for a machine and it is happening, try a slightly shorter run time.

Post back with more info. Now I am hungry for a sundae!! :)

It is not clear how you are making your ice cream - by hand or ice cream maker or cooking on stove?

There could be several suggestions so maybe one will help you.

I like this Martha Stewart no churn recipe and it does not have any "wax" taste.

www.marthastewart.com/.../no-churn-vanilla-ice-cream

I have also tried several other recipes and had no after taste so it is difficult to make suggestions.

If you are using the cooking method then you should try a different recipe and follow directions carefully. This is a slow process and cannot be hurried.

Find a good recipe it should include ingredients such as: Cream or whole milk, sugar, salt, flavoring or fruit and some include eggs, but i don't use the ones that do. Put into a ice cream maker or if you don't have one a Ziploc bag or bowl will work too. Mix your ingredients well, pour into quart size Ziploc bag seal tight, you may even want to tape it shut.

Fill large gallon size bag with ice and rock salt, put the quart size into the bag with the ice. Seal the gallon bag. and shake well. You want to keep agitating the bag until ice cream thickens, should take a while, so you may want to trade off with other people while doing this.

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.

SIMPLEST WAY!
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!!!

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

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).
