Ice water is only 32 degrees F, and ice cream needs to be much colder to properly freeze. The salt lowers the freezing point of the water. The super cold water is what will actually freeze the ice cream. You can actually get the temp of the liquid water down to about 10 degrees F.
regular table salt will work.
Ice cream is much easier to make in a compressor ice cream maker, which has a built in electric freezer. No ice or salt required. But this type of ice cream maker usually costs over $200, so if you only make ice cream rarely its best to use a cheap ice cream maker using an ice and salt freezing mixture to freeze the ice cream. The ice and salt are not part of the ice cream!
If you are using an ice cream maker that does not have a built in freezer, you need another method to get down to the temperature that the ice cream mixture will freeze at (about 27F). Typical salt and ice mixtures will be at about 10F (instead of the 32F of just ice alone).If you are using an ice cream maker that has a built in freezer, it will be at 0F or sometimes slightly colder depending on the model.
When you add salt to ice, it lowers the temperature. This means that it will take the ice longer to melt. In an ice cream maker the longer the ice is cold, the colder the ice cream gets, and the more frozen the resulting ice cream will be.
No. To make ice-cream in a bag, you do not need eggs. You need ice, sugar, milk, and salt to make ice cream in a bag.
because salt makes the ice colder allowing the ice cream to freeze faster!
5:1 Ice to salt
After using a ice cream maker take out the bowl and wash it with warm salt water and do this just after using it.
because salt makes stuff colder
No, you sure don't! You can put the cream mixture from an ice cream recipe in a zip-lock bag and then but that in a much large bag of crushed ice, or a tupperware container of crushed ice and salt. Agitate until the recipe freezes! There are a number of creative ways to do the agitation, the ice cream maker is just more effective and efficient
The salt is not "in" the ice cream, rather is added to the ice that surrounds the ice maker bucket to aid in chilling.
It helps drop the temperature with the ice to make the ice cream frozen or a low temperature.
Salt is put in the ice around the actual ice cream so that the ice doesn't melt.Actually the salt is added to the ice in the ice cream maker to make the ice melt FASTER, thus getting colder and speeding up the freezing of the ice cream.Use of a compressor ice cream machine makes use of the ice & salt mixture unnecessary.
we need it to enhance the flavor with out all the added sugar
You would need ice and salt. These are also the materials that you would need in order to make ice cream using an ice cream machine.
Ice cream has salt, the salt makes you thirsty.
When you add salt to the ice, it lowers the freezing point of the ice. The salt makes the ice melt faster. Without the salt, the temperature would not fall below 32F, or 0C which is not cold enough to make ice cream.
Salt water freezes at a lower temperature to regular water, so the salt helps to keep the ice from getting too cold, and turning the ice cream into just ice! it also helps stop the ice from sticking to the metal barrel.
No but it is alot easier to make with out one! They are quite cheep now, you can get them for 25 pounds! Ice cream recipe. link below. Homemade ice cream maker. Great for kids party. Pour ice cream mix in 1 quart Ziplock baggie(3/4 full). Put this baggie in 1 gallon bag with ice and couse salt(2 tbl.). roll the baggies for 20-30 minutes. You will have a great soft serve ice cream.
Halite or rock salt combines with ice to harden and cool the ice cream in a hand crank ice cream maker.
there is salt in homeade ice cream because if u use ice, the salt has to melt the ice to make the ice cream. :-)
You don't. To make ice cream you want to make it with ice cream salt.
salt makes the substance cold and for ice cream that is crucial
The Salt lowers the temperature I made home made ice cream but never used salt for it.
