Instructional Procedures

Prior to class, prepare the ice cream mixture to be frozen in ice cream freezer the day of the test.

In the fresh fruit recipe, I use egg beaters for the eggs as they are already pasteurized. Beat the eggs until thick and light colored. Stir in sugar and mix well. Dissolve 1 pkg. (3 oz.) raspberry gelatin in 1 cup boiling water. Cool, add to egg mixture with the evaporated milk, juice of 3 lemons, and crushed pineapple. Refrigerate overnight.

Day of test-Pour into 6-quart ice cream freezer. Add chopped up frozen fruit, unwhipped cream and fill freezer to 3/4 full with milk. Freeze according to directions with salt and ice.

Begin as soon as you can so you can get it frozen before the end of class. It will be very noisy as the ice cream freezer is operating.
