Ice cream is one of the traditional desserts that everyone can enjoy. Ice cream has evolved in so many flavors and patterns (hard or soft) that have become a universal pleasure. Ice cream lovers no longer associated with vanilla and regular chocolate can now choose from a wide variety of flavors. New Age ice cream has candy bars, marmalade, or strawberries included in a cream candy.
Before the advent of modern refrigeration equipment, ice cream candy was available only to society’s wealthiest segments. Ice has been removed from frozen lakes and rivers and stored in large holes called ice houses. The ice was brought into a large bath that contained salt, which was used to partially melt the ice, giving it a smooth, loosened texture.
After adequately mixing enough ice and salt with manual whisking mechanisms, the dessert turned into a fluffy, creamy batter. It was a daunting task that had to be performed continuously until the desired texture was created. Once the mix is perfect, you can add flavors to your ice cream dessert and serve it to customers. The ice cream did not last long, but attempts were made to preserve the dessert by storing it in a glacier.
Nowadays, some companies sell custom ice cream cups for home use. Using an ice cream candy maker allows the user to prepare a quick meal by freezing the device, adding the required ingredients, and mixing until full. These machines are produced on a large scale as desserts are made in large quantities and are sold infamous ice cream stores.
Making homemade ice cream desserts is easy. Most people love handcraft and even say that blends are better than famous brands. The advantage of making your ice cream is that it does not add artificial flavors or preservatives to it so that the dessert will be healthier.
Custard ice cream
The custard base is used to make fluffy ice cream. Custard ice cream recipes are not available, but the texture is usually less appealing.
Before you begin, you’ll need a saucepan, bowl, and whisk and stir pots.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon. Sugar
- Two egg yolks
Heat the milk, cream, and a third of a cup of sugar in a saucepan. Make sure to stir the mixture well until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Whisk 1 tbsp. Sugar in a bowl with yolks. Take this mixture and pour it into a saucepan. Make sure to keep stirring. If not mixed properly, the egg will soften, leaving small particles of cooked egg in the ice cream.
Keep stirring the mixture for five minutes or until it thickens. Drain the custard base in a clean bowl. Add any flavoring or filling to complete the perfect ice cream!
