When it comes to making an ice cream trick, there’s a lot of trial and error and a lot to consider.
But there’s one simple tip: Use glass skin.
“It’s the most common kind of skin, and it’s the cheapest,” says Dr. Nafesh Khatib, a dermatologist at the Ramat Gan-Harim Medical Center in Israel.
“You can use it on anything from a spoon to a piece of glass.
The trick is just to apply it and watch the magic happen.”
For starters, you want to get your hands on an unblemished piece of skin that doesn’t have the same type of scabs as your fingertips.
“They’re much more fragile,” Khatia explains.
“So it’s best to get something that is scratch-resistant and free of any scabs.”
“The trick is to apply the glass skin to a spoon,” adds Khatibi.
Then, he suggests using the tip of your fingers to gently pat the skin.
And, to finish the trick, put a thin layer of the glass on top of the ice cream.
“The glass will protect the surface of the cream,” says Khatiba.
“When it comes out of the dish, it’s going to be smooth and creamy.”
The secret to making this trick is not to put too much pressure on the ice.
“Just a little bit of pressure is enough to create a nice glossy finish,” he says.
“Don’t let the ice run away from you.”
So, how to get the best result?
Khatih and his team recommend using a thin plastic film or a glass bowl.
“We’re talking about a few centimeters of the film,” says the doctor.
“And that’s not a bad size to use.”
And the most important tip: Don’t let your ice cream run away.
“That’s a good thing because it’s a slippery surface, and if it runs away from your fingers, it can be hard to get a smooth finish,” Khoib says.
The glass skin is also easier to work with.
“If you have a small plastic bowl, that’s a better surface,” he adds.
“But the bigger the bowl, the more friction there is.”
So you can just leave the glass off the spoon or bowl, and you’ll have a smoother result.
“Even if it’s too thin, it doesn’t matter,” says Lidman.
“In a glass skin, there is a little surface that will help to get rid of the scabs, and the scab can come out, which is not the case in a bowl.”
In addition, the glass is easier to apply than a spoon, he says, so you can do it without a spoon.
“No matter what, if you have an ice-cream maker, you can get a really nice smooth, glossy finish on a spoon or a bowl,” says Gartner analyst and expert in health, wellness and consumer products, Dr. Tania Tazvini.
“As long as it’s not too thick, the surface is smooth and there’s no scab,” she adds.
And that’s the point.
“Your fingers, hands, even your face,” says Tazvi.
And you’re doing it right.
In the meantime, if your fingers or your skin isn’t scratch-proof, there are other tricks to consider, like using a piece on a sponge, or using a plastic bag over the ice-cube maker to keep the glass clean.
So if you’re looking to get some glass skin for an ice creamer, Khatili and Khatizbi suggest you use a plastic bowl or a plastic dish.
You can also try a little ice cream on a piece.
But if you don’t have glass skin at all, use a piece that is clean and is free of scab.
“With the glass, you’ll get a nice creamy finish,” says Nafresh.
And there’s nothing you can’t do with a little plastic bowl.
The next time you’re making ice cream, you might want to start by applying a little of your favorite ice cream to a glass.
“I have to admit that I don’t really know how to do that,” says Karim.
“This is the only way I know how,” he admits.
And even if you can only do that with a glass, there still might be a trick to this trick.
“For the best results, it might be best to use a bowl or plate over a glass,” adds Nafosh.
“Because, when you apply the cream, it will not spread around the edges,” he explains.
So, if the glass doesn’t fit in the bowl or dish, the trick may be to use an empty plastic bag instead.
“Some people like to do it by hand, but this is better,” he concludes.
So now you know how the trick works.
