Step 4: Bringing it all together
Most recipes will suggest at this point that the fruit be processed with a food processor. By all means if you have a food processor then process this food with it.
As you can see I used an old fashioned manual food processor to dice the fruit up into tiny little chunks.
Once the fruit has been diced up it can be added to the cold custard mix and put into the ice cream machine for processing. The amount of time and work it takes to freeze the ice cream varies considerably from machine to machine (and recipe to recipe).
So prepare your ice cream machine according to the directions and process your ice cream.
Note: There is still one more step. All ice cream machines produce a soft style ice cream. Personally I prefer my ice cream frozen pretty solid.
Also an ice cream machine can make a lot of ice cream. More than can be convenient.
