General Rules For Freezing

Scald and chill the can, cover and dasher of the freezer. Adjust the can carefully in the tub. Pour in the mixture, put in the dasher, cover, adjust the crank and pack with finely chopped ice and coarse salt. Use three times as much ice as salt for freezing; use four times as much ice as salt in packing. The ice and salt must be higher around the can than the mixture to be frozen is within the can.

In freezing milk or cream mixtures the crank should be turned slowly and steadily; in freezing sherbet the crank should be turned rapidly and steadily; in freezing water ice or frozen fruit, turn the crank steadily five minutes; allow it to stand five minutes; turn again five minutes and continue until freezing is completed.

When mixture is frozen, remove ice and salt from around the top of the can; wipe cover and top; uncover and remove dasher; then beat frozen mixture thoroughly with wooden spoon or paddle; place paraffine paper or heavy paper over can; cover and put a cork in the hole. Drain off all the water which has collected during the freezing and which should not be removed until freezing is completed; repack the freezer, putting ice and salt over the top, cover with carpet, blanket or newspaper and allow it to stand in a cold place several hours.

A tightly covered tin can and a wooden pail may be substituted for an ice cream freezer, using a wooden spoon or paddle to scrape the mixture from the sides and bottom of the can as it freezes.

In preparing frozen fruit or water ice, the sugar and water should be made into a syrup, which should be boiled five minutes, then strained.
