Miso Caramel Ice Cream

I love the Japanese culture and its food. There's something about salty miso soup - I could eat it every day. Miso is made from fermented soy beans and salt and it has numerous health benefits.

Caramel pairs well with miso which is why I included it but you could make this recipe without the caramel. You just need to ...

It also reduced the freezing point of your ice cream base which will provide you with a better end product. The Whiskey will also act as a stabiliser so your ice cream will store better in the freezer. ...

A Quick Guide to Ice Cream Overrun

What is overrun? Ice Cream overrun refers to the amount of air that is incorporated into ice cream during the churning process. A higher level of overrun will result more ice cream being produced at the end of churning. Ice cream manufacturers love overrun. It means they can sell a tub of ice cream; half of that being air!
