I saw this first on Pinterest, but, apparently, I didn't pin it! But I did bookmark the blog where it originated. I babysat four of my granddaughters last evening while their parents went to a banquet, so we tried it and it worked great!!
This evening, another couple grand kids were over, so we did it again and I got pics of the process. They loved "making" their own ice cream!
Here's the recipe as found here:
Homemade Ice Cream In A Bag
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup half and half
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup salt (The bigger the granules, the better. Kosher or rock salt works best, but table salt is fine.)
- Ice cubes (enough to fill each gallon-size bag about half full)
- 1 pint-size ziplock bag
- 1 gallon-size ziplock bag
