How to Churn Your Ice Cream
Once youve made your ice cream base, you need to churn it with an ice cream maker. Though all ice cream machines operate on the same basic principles, theyre built slightly differently, so read the manufacturers instructions carefully before using your machine. The following are basic guidelines for operating an ice cream maker.
Set up your ice cream machine on a flat surface, away from any heat sources that might interfere with the freezing of your base. Remove your chilled base from the refrigerator and pour it into the machine. Turn on the machine (note that some machines instruct you to turn the machine on before pouring in your base). You may find it helpful to place your chilled base in the freezer for 5 minutes to get it extra cold prior to churning.
Churn the ice cream for 2030 minutes, checking it at the 15-minute mark to monitor its thickness. When the ice cream mounts high on the blade of your machines dasher, it has reached its peak thickness. With ice and rock salt machines and freezer-insert machines, your ice cream will reach peak thickness between the 20- and 30-minute marks, after which point the ice or liquid coolant will begin to melt and your ice cream will start to melt too. Watch your ice cream carefully to catch the proper endpoint.
If youll be adding mix-in ingredients, such as chocolate chips, nuts, candy, or fruit pieces, add them when your ice cream has just reached its peak thickness. Most motorized ice cream makers have openings on the top that allow you to add mix-ins while the machine is still running. Turn off the machine right after the mix-ins are incorporated.
Using a plastic spatula or a wooden spoon, scoop the ice cream out of the machine and transfer it into your preferred storage container, working quickly to minimize melting. Put the container in your freezer to allow it to harden. Do not use a metal spoon to remove the ice cream from your machine, as you might damage the walls of the freezing canister. If you prefer soft ice cream, serve it immediately.
