Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip: 

Make fruit ice cream extra luscious by picking out the freshest and ripest fruits for the recipe. Using fruits past their prime will result in limp chunks on your ice cream. 

Make cooking a lot easier and more enjoyable by using good quality silicone baking mats. Not only are silicone mats sturdy and durable. Because they're non-stick, you can also cut your clean-up time in half.
