Ice Cream | Basics with Babish

This week on Basics, things take a turn for the sweeter because I’m making ice cream. We’re going to try a few different techniques that vary in difficulty, but they all have one thing in common: you don’t need a standalone appliance.

  3. OmNomNom Production says:

    And what is prepared in sous-vide?)))

    • Zach Lee says:

      OmNomNom Production sous vide is a water bath that you cook your food in. It gets the water to the exact temperature (perfect for steak) and it will cook it to that temperature no more no less. The meat is in a bag with any seasonings. (I have a pork shoulder going rn for carnitas!)

    • Zach Lee says:

      OmNomNom Production and you know how when you get a steak medium rare there’s like a slight gray area? None of that with you vide. Crisp outside, (color of preffered steak inside) and you char them after you cook them in the sous vide! Delicious steak or whatever you cook every time

    • wjzabat says:

      i think he’s asking about what was actually being prepared with the sous vide machine in the background

    • Mark Richardson says:

      I also am curious as to what you are cooking in your water bath.

  10. SEiMEi says:

    You keep making foods with bananas despite having a banana allergy

    • Demonetized Gaming says:

      C she or the drink?

    • The Pope Nutz says:

      I can’t even touch a peanut… Or prawns for that matter.
      Babish must have out grown the allergy

    • Breezey 100 says:

      Linktjk I mean his allergy to bananas is probably like mine to the point where if you smell it, it has no effect but if you eat it you’ll have an itchy mouth and throat. Like I can be around bananas sometimes the smell is overpowering and I have slight trouble breathing but nothing too serious.

    • Kirbys_father says:

      Then your ice cream tastes like bananas lmao

    • LaurenB16 says:

      I have acid reflux as well, but I’ve never connected the two. When I eat bananas I also get terrible, awful stomach cramps that make me wanna curl into a ball forever.
