  2. Pour liquid into a large, shallow pan. Place pan on a flat surface in the freezer and freeze for at least 8 hours. During the first 2 hours, remove the pan every 20 to 40 minutes and stir the contents with a fork, making sure to scrape down the sides of dish and combining the iced and still-liquid portions.
