How to Store Homemade Ice Cream

You have made your delicious homemade ice cream, but now what? Unless you've made it to eat it immediately, the liklihood is that you will need to store it, and we are here to show you how. 

Method

  1. Check the Temperature

    Double check the temperature of the freezer, it's amazing how out they can be. 0ºF/-18ºC is the optimum temperature to store ice cream at. 

  2. Use Airtight Containers

    Make sure that the airtight containers you choose are freezer-safe.

  3. Cover with Plastic

    Covering the surface of the ice cream with plastic wrap/cling film will prevent ice crystals from forming. 

  4. Store in the Right Place

    If you can, store the ice cream at the back of the freezer as this is less likely to encounter temperature changes when the door is opened and closed. This change in temp can cause the ice cream to become grainy, and no-one wants that.
