You’ll start to notice the half-and-half mixture getting thicker simply by touching it through the plastic bag. In eight minutes max you should have some seriously delicious ice cream. Note: the more ice cream you’re trying to make, the more shaking you’ll have to do. If you’re making ice cream for a crowd, we recommend sharing the shaking duties with others.
When you remove the smaller bag, wipe it down carefully to get rid of all the salt on the outside. Nothing ruins homemade ice cream quite like a big glob of wet salt.
Now that you’ve gotten your arm workout in for the day, it’s time to serve up your fresh homemade ice cream and cover it in toppings.
