Why does the hot ice cream need to be removed from the hot water with a spherification spoon?

So you don’t end up with a pool of water on the plate.

Are there coffee-free and chocolate-free hot ice cream recipes?
July 26, 2020 8:30 pm
The hot ice cream recipe is mostly about technique. You can use the same recipe to make other types of hot ice creams as well, the ratios may have be tweaked a bit but the general technique is the same.

Hi! If left to gel all the way through, is the hot ice cream’s texture comparable to that of regular ice cream?
Awesome blog btw!

No, it’s not going to be like a regular ice cream. Hot ice cream is definitely it’s own thing.

Hey, I was wondering if E4M work with this?
January 29, 2021 8:37 am
It would not, the gel would be too soft.

When I made this it was already like pudding in the spoon. Should I use less a4c?
June 14, 2021 10:37 am
The amount of A4C in the recipe is correct, but if you want a thinner consistency you can try using slightly less.

Hi is it possible to make a savory version of this without the sugar? If so would the ratios need to be adjusted?
September 7, 2021 4:23 pm
you can use this to make sweet or savory not ice creams. the ratio doesn’t need to be adjusted.

How might one serve hot ice cream in a quenelle or rocher
October 22, 2021 4:10 pm
A method you might try would be to create your quenelle and gently lower your spoon in. Once the top side begins to set after a few seconds. You should be able to easily free the now gelled quenelle from the spoon. If the mixture is not thick enough, you can always bump up the methocel ratio slightly, by 0.5% increments until you reach your desired thickness.
