MAKING FROZEN DESSERTS THE WARING WAY
Whether you are going to make a classic rich vanilla ice cream, a light fruit ice or low-calorie frozen yogurt, the same simple steps outlined below will always apply.
Aside from the Waring Ice Cream Parlor™ itself and the mixture to be processed the only things you need to make perfect frozen desserts are:
- Four trays of ice cubes from your refrigerator
- One standard 26-ounce box of ordinary table salt
- Two cups of cold water
BASIC STEPS FOR MAKING FROZEN DESSERTS IN THE WARING ICE CREAM PARLOR™
Select the mixture to be processed, choosing one of the recipes in this booklet, or using your own recipe. (See Special Tips)
Have the box of table salt, four trays of ice cubes and the two cups of cold water handy and ready to use.
- GETTING THE WARING ICE CREAM PARLOR™ READY
Place the ICE BUCKET onto the MOTOR AND BASE ASSEMBLY so that the DRIVE SOCKET located on the underside of the ice bucket engages with the DRIVE SHAFT protruding from the top of the base assembly. (Refer to Fig. 1) Rotate the ice bucket until it drops down over the raised STOP LUGS on the base assembly and seats firmly.
Pour ingredients to be processed into the cream can. For most desserts, the liquid level should be below the FILL LINE stamped into the can wall. This is so that the mixture will have sufficient room to expand during processing without overflowing the cream can. Some desserts, however, such as sherbets and fruit ices, expand less than others, and with these it is permissible to exceed the FILL LINE. Stir the mixture thoroughly if required by the recipe, using only a wooden spoon or a plastic or rubber spatula to avoid scratching the interior of the cream can.
Insert DASHER into CREAM CAN. Be sure that the ROUNDED BALL-END of the dasher's center shaft seats into the matching indentation in the bottom of the cream can. (Refer to Fig. 1)
Place the transparent plastic CAN LID over the top end of the dasher shaft and snap it firmly into place over the rim of the cream can.
Place the loaded cream can into the ice bucket, making sure that the drive socket indentation in the bottom of the cream can engages with the drive shaft protruding from the bottom of the ice bucket.
Fit the socket located on the underside of the SUPPORT ARM onto the hexagonal tip of the dasher shaft extending up through the can lid. Grasp both ends of the support arm, and rotate it until the ends drop into the cutouts in the rim of the ice bucket. Press downward lightly on the ends of the support arm and rotate the support arm counterclockwise until it stops and is securely locked into place.
You are now ready to fill the space between the cream can and the ice bucket with a mixture of ice, salt, and water, which will lower the temperature of the contents of the cream can to its freezing point.
Start the motor by inserting the plug into a regular 120 volt AC household receptacle. The cream can and attached cover will rotate in a counterclockwise direction. The dasher, prevented from rotating by the support arm, will remain stationary.
With the motor running, begin building the freezing mixture by pouring 1 cup of the cold water into the ice bucket. Follow with a layer of ice cubes, one cube deep. Sprinkle about 6 level tablespoons of table salt evenly over the top of the ice cubes. Continue building up the ice/salt mixture, layer by layer, until the ice bucket is full. Sprinkle on any remaining salt and slowly pour the remaining cup of water evenly over the top layer so that the water uniformly "wets down" the entire ice/salt load in the ice bucket.
The processing time and volume of the finished product are influenced by a number of variable factors, including:
- Initial temperature of mix being processed.
- Variations in the composition of mix ingredients.
- Amount of salt, ice and water used in the freezing mixture. (See Section 5 — Special Tips)
Because of these factors, processing time will vary between 20 and 50 minutes, and the finished product may or may not completely fill the cream can.
As the mixture begins to freeze and thicken and expand to its proper consistency, the motor will begin to labor and slow down, normally coming to a near or complete stall indicating that processing has been completed.
(Occasionally, the motor may not stop or slow down appreciably even though processing is complete. If this occurs, The Waring Ice Cream Parlor™ should be allowed to operate for no more than 50 minutes in all before unplugging. Most of the ice will have melted by this time, and little additional freezing would take place if it were run longer.)
The motor of your Waring Ice Cream Parlor™ is equipped with a device to prevent overheating should the appliance be running unattended when a stall occurs. If this happens, the motor will automatically shut itself off after an interval, and the ready light on the base assembly will come on, giving a visual indication that processing has been completed.
The automatic motor shut-off will reset itself after a sufficient time interval has elapsed. If the appliance is still plugged in at this time, the ready light will go out and the motor will start again. You should, therefore:
ALWAYS UNPLUG APPLIANCE BEFORE REMOVING ANY PARTS.
When processing has been completed, unplug Waring Ice Cream Parlor.™ Remove ice bucket from base assembly and set it on the counter. Remove support arm from ice bucket by pushing down gently on both ends, rotating clockwise, and lifting off. Wipe any ice or salt from can lid, and lift can out of ice bucket with cover and dasher still in place. Remove cover and dasher. The processed mixture will be of a soft, creamy consistency at this point, and should be served immediately unless additional hardening is desired.
If you wish to harden or "ripen" the processed mixture, follow these tips:
Using a wooden spoon, or a plastic or rubber spatula, stir the processed mixture to blend together the firm and soft portions. Pack mixture down to exclude air pockets. Place a piece of waxed paper or plastic wrap over the mouth of the cream can, and snap can lid back into place. If you prefer, mixture may be spooned into plastic freezer containers with tight fitting lids, allowing about 1/2" for additional expansion.
Place covered can or containers into refrigerator freezing compartment for 1-2 hours. It may be necessary to temporarily adjust your refrigerator's temperature control to a lower than normal setting in order to get the processed mixture to set up firmly.
ONCE THE CREAM CAN HAS BEEN EMPTIED AFTER USE, BE SURE TO WASH IT IN VERY HOT, SOAPY WATER. RINSE AND DRY THOROUGHLY.
