Just a note about the consistency of the ice cream in my recipe photo. Usually, my ice cream is much thicker but I was forced to buy a new ice cream freezer and I do not like it at all! It's one of those new oval shaped ones made to look like an ice cream cone with the motor attached. I do not recommend them at all! First of all, you have to time the ice cream run time...it does not stop or slow down automatically. It just runs until you stop it. Therefore, I don't think the paddle turns the ice cream enough to get it all frozen. Second, I'm not a fan of the oval design. It was advertised to be easier to fill with ice and salt but they didn't leave any room hardly on the sides and I don't think the ice can get to the can well enough to freeze it well. Third every piece of the equipment except the paddle and the motor is flimsy and light weight, and appears just cheaply made. My advice....hold on to your old freezers!!!! They just don't make them like they used to! I was able to put the bucket in my freezer and let it thicken up some more. Happy eating!
