What is Artisan ice cream? Quite simply, artisan ice cream is ice cream made by an artisan, which the dictionary defines as being a ‘skilled craftsperson’. Delving a bit deeper in to the dictionary tells us that a crafts-person is someone who makes things skilfully by hand. Artisan makers certainly do take a very ‘hands on’ approach using all the skills that many have learnt from many, many years making ice cream with recipes and techniques often handed down from one generation to the next. Artisan producers make smaller batches of ice cream that will be sold and eaten in as short a time as possible as ‘fresh’ ice cream is the best around. They also use processes and machinery that need the ‘human touch’ be it in choosing and mixing the ingredients or keeping a close eye on the freezing to make sure the ice cream is of the smoothest, highest quality possible. How is Artisan ice cream made? As well as the experience and skill of the artisan maker, great ice cream begins with quality ingredients. The first step is mixing the ingredients to the artisan makers own recipe before being pasteurised. The next step is to churn the mix in a ‘Batch Freezer’ ice cream machine to blend in some air. It may seem strange that ice cream has air in it but if it didn’t it would come out of the freezer like an ice cube and not like ice cream at all. The amount of air varies from recipe to recipe but it is always added to produce the ‘lick-able’ treat. During the churning process the temperature of the mix is lowered to between -2°C and -7°C and it is also at this stage that the artisan maker may add pieces of fruit, toffee, cookie or nuts etc to complete the recipe. When the process is complete the ice cream is put into a container and then put in a freezer where the ice cream is ‘hardened’ at a temperatures of approx -22°C.
