- Firming and Storing Ice Cream:
- To get frozen desserts hard enough to scoop onto a cone, or to store them, transfer when frozen to an airtight container and put in the freezer at least 3 hours or up to 1 week.
- If freezing with ice and salt, leave the frozen dessert in ice and salt up to 3 hours.
- For best flavor and texture, serve frozen desserts within a week. On longer standing, icy crystals develop.
