Should I be concerned if my ice cream mixture doesn't taste "great"

Laura D. | Nov 16, 2007 01:59 PM

I am an ice cream making novice, and am practicing a peach ice cream (I know, totally out of season but it is part of a special birthday dinner for someone who loves peaches) that I hope to make in two weeks. However, I just made the ice cream mixture, which I have chilling in the refrigerator before I add it to my Kitchen Aid ice cream maker attachment. I tasted a tiny bit of the mixture, expecting to taste something like ice cream, only in melted form, and instead I tasted something that, while not bad, I wouldn't want a bowl of. Can anyone confirm whether my mixture will taste dramatically different (and ideally better) once it cools and goes through the ice cream maker? I'm thinking that perhaps the current taste can be attributed to the fact that it is warm dairy, which is rarely an enjoyable thing to eat. If I should expect the ice cream to taste similar to what the mixture tastes like now then I might stop where I'm at and try to find a different recipe. Any information from anyone with ice cream making experience would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
