The mixture must then mature for at least 4 hours, up to 24 hours at a temperature of between 2°C and 5°C. It is stirred continuously while it matures. After maturation the mixture is aerated and frozen to -6 °C to be filled. After packing, ice cream is hardened and placed in cold storage at a temperature of -20°C.
