Serving the perfect ice cream is tricky, and you have to take into account many more aspects than you think. To begin with, the temperature at which the ice cream is served is very important.

What temperature is the ice cream served at?

According to ice cream experts, the temperature at which ice cream should be served is between -10º and -12º, because you have to take into account that from the time it is served until it is consumed, its temperature can increase. That will be the ideal temperature to be able to use the ice-cream scoop easily.

Just as the brush is the key instrument of any painter, the ice-cream scoop is everything to an ice-cream maker. The also known as rationing spoons serve us to have an exact measure and to make the ice cream ball always homogeneous and with a perfect shape.

Did you know that the ball sack was invented by Alfred L. Cralle in the United States in 1897? The truth is that it is a very simple idea, but also very practical and comfortable to serve ice cream without staining and without destroying the presentation.

Returning to the technique, it is advisable to introduce the ball sacabola into a glass full of warm water and put it in the freezer for two minutes. This is done to prevent the ice cream ball from sticking to the spoon and from slipping easily into the container or glass where it is to be served.

When we have it ready, we must introduce the ball sacabola into the ice cream tub about two centimetres, picking up the ice cream ball that is being created with semicircular movements. Once you have the ball done, you must make a quick movement to deposit it carefully in the ice cream tubs, cones or in the ice cream cups.

To serve the next ball of ice cream, whether it is the same flavor or another, we must put the ball sacabola back into the water glass to clean it.

As with everything, technique is learned through practice, so you know what to do these days. Besides, you can reward yourself with some ice cream spoons 😉
