We recently shared six methods for making ice cream without an ice cream maker
, but here is one more: Jeni Britton Bauer's
very simple method for making creamy ice cream with the help of your food processor.
With this method, you freeze your ice cream base flat in a freezer bag, then crumble the frozen base into the food processor. The frozen chunks are processed until smooth, poured into a container and frozen completely. And there you have it: ice cream with a texture Jeni describes as a little bit finer, like gelato.
Have you ever tried making ice cream in a food processor?
