comment Is there a magic ingredient that keeps ice-cream soft?
That's what the ice cream churn does for you, @floele: it works air into the mixture as it freezes it. There are other ways to accomplish this, but it's really hard to beat a churn. This is also why it's critical that you have a cold, homogenized mixture before you start churning: otherwise, you're just freezing the water out.

Bacon grease makes a wonderful substitute for butter in savory corn bread as well.

comment Is it safe to put hot food in the fridge?
Sounds very likely that there's another defect in your fridge here and it's not properly draining condensation - this is going to be a problem regardless of how much hot food you put into it.

comment What could cause a sudden loss of sour flavor?
I observed something similar years ago with sour-coated candy (sweet gummy confections coated with a citric acid powder). Intensely sour at first, but noticeably less after a few days in storage and merely tangy after a few weeks. I have no good explanation for this though.
