Ice Cream Making Setback

Strawberry/Blackberry Ice Cream
Not 5 minutes after I said, "Don't break it." it was broken. 

Our ice cream making marathon has come to a screeching halt.

Those plastic paddles were just not made to turn in freezer hard ice cream.

 What you see here is what is left of  strawberry ice cream with blackberries picked at our local u-pick.  We use a rice paddle to scoop with, works wonderfully for what is normally more of a soft serve textured ice cream.  This was a second batch of the same mix and the canister wasn't quite cold enough to firm it up enough...so we stuck it in the freezer.  It was supposed to be temporary.  I'd been doing it all weekend long with great success.  I was told it was hard to turn, but didn't actually look at it myself.....

It tastes wonderful...severe rationing is in order.

  1. Oh No!! What a bummer...sounds like the icecream would be super tasty, though! Hope you get a new one by summertime ;) thanks for sharing this with the hearth and soul hop this week.

  2. We are on our 3rd ice-cream maker in 22 years. Plastic paddles just aren't as sturdy as the old metal ones! The ice-cream looks tasty though!

  3. I hear that you can still make ice cream without an ice cream maker. You'd just have to do it in a metal pan and use a hand blender or mixer.
