I am making ice cream with an inexpensive electric machine that uses a dasher. For a test I put 2 quarts of water in the inner pot. Then I added 8 trays of ice to the space between the inner and outer pots. I am figuring 5 part ice to 1 part rock salt. How do I combine the ice and rock salt for the most uniform cooling?
I tried combining the ice and salt before putting the mix in the machine but that did not work.
