Pro Tips

1. Never add your mix-ins at the beginning of the process. At them right at the end of churning. 2. Always error on the side of caution when it comes to churning your ice cream. It will continue to freeze in the freezer. 3. Homemade ice cream crystalizes easily, however xanthan gum help keeps it creamy.
