Tip: Jazz up homemade ice cream with stir-ins, like crumbled cookies, toasted nuts or chopped fruit. Here are few tips to get you started:
• Stir-ins should be small, about the size of a pea.
• Cool toasted ingredients completely before adding them to the ice cream maker.
• Check your ice cream maker's instructions when it comes to judging the volume of your stir-ins. In general, we recommend 1 cup of stir-ins per quart of ice cream.
• Add stir-ins to the ice cream maker during the last 5 minutes of freezing.
