Instructions
Ice Cream Mixture
  1. Start with a heavy bottom saucepan. You will need at least a 6 or 8-quart pot.
  2. Add in your milk products and cut the burner on medium low.
  3. At this point we need to scaled the milk. Milk is scalded when it reaches 180 degrees F. I like to use a quick read thermometer to keep an eye on the temperature. Look for small bubbles to form around the edge and steam. Make sure to keep stirring the mixture as well. Once it reaches the temperature or close to it, remove it. If the mixture gets too hot, it will erupt into a boiling mess and it will be ruined.
  4. Next, add in your sugar, salt, and Vanilla flavoring. Stir well to incorporate and dissolve the sugar.
  5. Pour your mixture into your ice cream canister. Add your mixer paddle and lid then place in the refrigatrator or freezer. The mixture will need to chill before churning. Do not let it freeze. We are just looking for it to get cold.
  6. Puree your strawberries and place in a bowl in the refrigerator until your mixture is chilled.
  7. Once your mixture is chilled you can remove from the refrigerator or freezer and add in your strawberries.
Churning the Ice Cream
  1. Place your canister into the churn bucket.
  2. Add a layer of ice around the canister then a layer of salt. You will keep alternating the ice and salt till it reaches just below the hole in the ice cream bucket.
  3. Install the motor on the icecream bucket.
  4. Before I start I like to add a towel under the bucket and wrap the bucket in a towl. This will help catch the sweat and help insulate the bucket. Just be sure not to cover the motor up or the top of it where the fan is.
  5. Church your ice cream until the motor stops. This time can vary. You will also need to keep a check on the ice and salt mixture as it will melt. You can pour the water off through the hole in the side of the bucket and keep adding more ice and salt till it is finished.
Hardening or ripening the ice cream
  1. Once the motor stops, you will take the canister out of the ice cream bucket. Take it to the sick so that you can remove the mixer paddle inside.
  2. Put the lid back on and stick the canister in the freezer for atleast one hour to harden or ripen the ice cream.
