Have the mold very cold before pouring in the mixture. Fill very full so that mixture will be forced down into the mold when the cover is put on. Smooth the top before putting on lid and cover the mixture with two layers of waxed paper, this will help to hold the lid tight Completely bury the mold in a mixture of three parts ice to one part coarse salt Table salt will not give results and is wasteful. To Prepare Desserts in the Pans of Iceless Refrigerators: Thin ice creams with a small percentage of cream are not satisfactory in iceless machines since there is no opportunity for stirring the mixture and breaking up the little ice crystals. Rich ice creams are especially good when frozen in these pans. Beat the cream very stiff and add a small amount of dissolved gelatine to overcome the formation of ice crystals. All desserts that are packed in ice ordinarily, may be made satisfactorily in an iceless refrigerator. Desserts should freeze in from five to seven hours unless the machine is set below the average ice-cube forming temperature.
