Systm #101: Systm 101: Liquid Nitrogen Makes Delicious Ice Cream in Under a Minute!

Posted in Podcasts on April 28, 2009

It's been super hot this week in San Francisco, which has the Systm crew thinking of home made ice cream, but using Liquid Nitrogen instead of a boring old ice cream maker!

Everybody loves home made ice cream, especially the Systm crew!

But making a batch usually involves an ice cream makerof some kind, possibly a lot of cranking, and, frankly a lot of waiting.

Being the ADD geeks that we are we decided to hurry things up a bit by making a quick trip to our fave welding supply store and picking up a $25 10 liter dewar of Liquid Nitrogen, then heading to our kitchen for a steel bowel, whisk and a wooden spoon.

The ice cream recipe doesn't matter... you can use the LN2 technique with any ice cream recipe for a delightfully light and creamy texture!

You do need to be careful! Liquid nitrogen is -extremely- cold, and can do serious damage. Practice good LN2 safety... at the very least, wear eye protection, and -never- put it in a sealed container or pour it down a drain.
