container, cover it, and put it into the coldest part of your freezer.
Leave the ice cream mixture for about 1 - 1 1/2 hours, or until the sides and the bottom are just frozen and the middle of the mixture is still soft slush.
Remove the mixture from the freezer and beat it, using an electric whisk, mixer, or a food processor. Beat it until the ice crystals are uniform. It is important to work quickly at this stage to prevent the ice crystals from melting.
Cover the mixture, and quickly return it to the freezer.
Repeat this process two more times, at 1 - 1 1/2 hour intervals.
If you are adding large chunks, such as chocolate, broken cookies or
candy, add them after the third or fourth beating.
After the final beating, allow the ice cream to freeze for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight, before serving.
- it is not necessary to beat a "semifreddo" while still freezing it -
just cover the surface area and freeze it for at least 6 hours or more.
