Exploring sonicating ice cream

Yes, “sonicating” is a word.

I’ve been exploring a different way to make ice cream than the standard way with a “dasher” pushing ice crystals into solution over and over. Searches aren’t showing that lots of other hobbyists are playing with this, though I’m not sure why not. It’s delicious research.
