About

Luxurious, and velvety smooth home- made dessert.

Serving: take it out of the freezer for 5-10 minutes before serving, or longer, so it comes to the right scooping temperature.

Easy suggestion: ice cream is best served in chilled glass or porcelain bowls. Scoop it with a hot, but dry, ice-cream spoon (soak it in boiling water, then wipe dry).
