Too Much of a Good Thing

Reader Al asks:

Can you use too much stabilizer in an ice cream/sorbet? And what happens if you do?

Indeed you can use too much, at great cost to your finished product. Using too much of a stabilizer like gelatin creates a mouthfeel that’s gummy, almost chewy in extreme cases. So, it’s better to err on the side of adding too little.
