Homemade ice cream - question about chilling custard base before churning

JanRan | Jul 28, 2010 09:59 AM

Most recipes I've come across say to chill the custard base over a bowl of ice water and then place in refrigerator to chill for several hours or overnight.

Is it really necessary to quick chick over ice water, as long as the base gets sufficiently chilled in the fridge before churning. Seems like an unnecessary step to me.
