Of course, it doesn't matter how good or expensive your ice cream maker is if you don't have a good recipe. There are many good ice cream cookbooks available. (See ice cream cookbook list!) Another thing to keep in mind is the quality of your ingredients. Use the ripest fruit, fine chocolate, good Dutch process cocoa, quality extracts (never artificial flavorings) and, of course, the freshest eggs, milk and cream.
Ice Cream, accounting for a whopping 87% of frozen dessert sales, traditional ice cream is a must-have for your restaurant dessert menu. So what exactly makes soft serve different from hard ice cream? Aside from the obvious difference in texture, the preparation is altered as well (contributing to the difference in product). At the time of freezing, soft serve ice cream preparation introduces air, giving it the lighter, softer texture. Be sure to take advantage of bulk discount prices by storing any hard ice cream in your Metalfrio Chest Freezer. Remember that most hard ice cream suppliers require storage at -20 degrees, and your standard walk-in usually ranges from 0 to -10, so investing in a chest freezer is essential for proper storage.
