Ice Cream | Basics with Babish

  • Published on Jul 12, 2018
  • This week on Basics, things take a turn for the sweeter because I'm making ice cream. We're going to try a few different techniques that vary in difficulty, but they all have one thing in common: you don't need a standalone appliance.

    I made the sweetened condensed milk and it came out really sweet, any ideas why? I mean, it's good, but a little bit sweet, and I even put a little bit less of condensed milk.

    I love that you added butter into the condensed milk ice cream - I was thinking of a way to sneak something cannabis infused into ice cream, and I think I found the way. I love this.

    the one thing I will say that's different from how I was taught in school is.. he adds the cocoa powder after the mix has reached the correct temp and says "this would be where you would add different flavorings if you wanted to."
    Eh, it's not that it's wrong, but you won't have a pronounced flavor of what you want. They way I was taught is to add the flavorings at the beginning and keep them in there until you're ready to freeze and churn.. So in this case add the cocoa powder at the beginning.. Or if you wanted to do something like lemon lime ice cream (shitty example I know) you would grate the zest of lemon and lime into the beginning stage and after it's brought up to temp add the juices.

      +Trevor Cook Cool cool cool, thank you btw! you've helped alot.

    • Trevor Cook
      Trevor Cook 2 months ago

      I would add it with the heavy cream in the initial stage.. Because like he said you're diluting the sweetened condensed milk base with the whipped cream.. if you dont add it in the heavy cream stage you'd be essentially just adding bland whipped cream.

    • TaazOtaku
      TaazOtaku 2 months ago

      +Trevor Cook hmmm intresting. and when do i add the vanilla extract in the sweet condensed milk one? once i dump the sweet condensed milk in the bowl, righty?

    • Trevor Cook
      Trevor Cook 2 months ago

      Great question. Personally I never add any flavoured “powder” because there’s always the opportunity for it to be chalky or gluey.
      When you buy vanilla look for “real vanilla extract” on the bottle. Some say real some say artificial. Or you add vanilla paste. OR you could be really fancy and get vanilla bean pods.

  • Stephan - Stumbling on Balance

    Love your videos! One tip: The ice cubes would cool your bowl faster if you use a water/ice mixture and not just ice with some salt on it. The salt melts the ice but it then drops down to the bottom which only helps a little. Ice/water is the way to go! Much much faster.

      It’s most likely a condition called OAS or Oral Allergy Syndrome. It affects people differently. I can’t touch bananas or eat them raw or cooked but some people can.

    I bought a cheap Cuisinart ice cream maker that I used to revel my family with my ice cream concoctions. I bought a book by Ben and Jerry as well with simple recipes for making ice cream and have followed those for years. I like that all I have to do is freeze the bowl, pop it in the maker, pour in the ingredients (minus anything that requires chunks, save those for near the end), and let it go. I always then put that mixture in the freezer for several hours to make it harden as I don't prefer soft serve if I get a choice.
    My favorite that I've made is egg nog and cookies and cream. My very first ice cream was sea salt ice cream from Kingdom Hearts (I've had this picture of Riku as my profile for the entirety of my time on USclip, since 2006; natutally I had to pay homage to the series). My sibling loved it enough to ask me to make it again. You want to talk about a person grinning like a fool from praise, lol! He and I are now roommates but I need to retrieve the freezing bowl from my mom's from when we all lived together so I can take a stab at something else. Chocolate sounds like it indeed will be my next adventure.
