mine does, but I only use eggs, creme, and vanilla favoring. I don't really care how hard it gets. I solve that problem with nuking in the microwave for 30s.

Yeah - I was asking Steven. I know this glycerol stuff starts out as a thick liquid, but does it revert to a liquid after the processing?

I would like to know also, although I wouldn't use it.

No, it's too good to waste. It melts and runs down my throat.

I don't believe the resulting mixture is much thicker (if at all) than it would be with an equivalent amount of sugar.

Pretty surprising to find all the suspicion regarding glycerin here, since it was by searching this forum that I first learned the trick of using it in ice cream. No suspicion in 2011 that I noticed.

Those who are suspicious of glycerin, should probably watch how much fat they consume. Our digestive systems break the fat we eat into it's component fatty acids and glycerin (or glycerol) which is then absorbed into the blood. And although it's classified as a carbohydrate by the FDA, it is metabolized more like fat in that it provides energy without raising blood glucose. Of course your meter will let you know this for sure. It is a manufactured product, so it may not qualify as strictly ancestral or paleo. Still, we've been making the stuff since the invention of soap so it's hardly an invention of modern chemistry.

It's pretty handy stuff, used in lots of products. Lately, I've been easing the irritation following cataract surgery by using drops that contain it. And if you use your imagination you might think of some other pretty good uses for an edible, sweet tasting water based lubricant. Now I think I'll go make some macadamia ice cream.

I can't imagine why you're so surprised. It should have come across quite clearly by now that most of us here just eat real food (JERF). We avoid processed products for the express reason that manmade foods usually prove to be less than healthy.

And just for the record, I haven't eaten soap since I was four years old when Mom washed my mouth out with it for giving her a raspberry. Why would I start using a by-product of soap-making?
