Honey Ice Cream in Kyoto. Bloody cold!
Hi, My name is Collier Perry in Rockdale, Texas. I have developed a frozen custard based on an old recipe my Mother had for southern boiled custard. I make the product in a Stoelting pump(as opposed to gravity feed) soft serve machine. My recipe consists of whole milk, 37% cream, sugar, whole eggs, and vanilla. I am happy with the taste I have developed and am happy with the texture if the product is fresh and is served between 15 and 20 degrees F. However the shelf life is short. The flavor seems to diminish with time as well as the texture. Can you suggest any additives I might consider using to increase the shelf life and decrease the formation of ice crystals? Thank you.

Hi there Collier!
Thanks for getting in touch! I know exactly what you mean when you refer to flavour and texture diminishing over time. I would of course recommend serving your custard fresh to get the best flavour. I don’t know much about stabilisers or additives as I don’t use them but you could try looking into using guar gum or locust bean gum as a way of inhibiting ice crystal growth during storage. I would also recommend storing your product at around -30°C to retard ice crystal growth. The colder you can get your product, the longer ice crystal growth will take.
Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.
All the best, Ruben
