Top Tips for Making Ice Cream

If you are using fruit in ice cream, cook the fruit with sugar so that is becomes a compote. Otherwise, fruit chunks or pieces pieces will lock in water as they freeze and will become unpleasant to bite into.

When cooking the custard, use a moderate heat. If the heat is too high the eggs will cook.

Add mix-ins such as chocolate chips or chopped nuts at the very end of making ice cream, otherwise they will all sink to the bottom.

After ice cream is made, freeze for five hours before eating for optimal texture.
