Homemade Ice Cream

Since I have a toddler now, I am finding I have to be "creative" in how I entertain...Has anyone tried this? I have heard it is good....

Homemade Ice Cream: "Homemade Ice Cream

Here is a quick recipe to keep the kids busy and provide them a delicious treat!

1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup half and half
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 sandwich size Ziploc bags
1 one gallon size Ziploc bag
2 cups ice
1 tablespoon coarse salt

1. Put one small Ziploc bag inside the other then add the milk, half and half, sugar, and vanilla extract to the inside bag.

2. Remove excess air & seal both bags.

3. Add the ice and salt to larger bag and place smaller bag inside. Seal firmly.

4. Now it's time for the kids to shake, rattle & roll the baggie. Ice cream will be ready to eat in 5-10 minutes."

I haven't tried this, but at large family gatherings, we put heavy cream in a mason jar with a pinch of salt and the kids take turns shaking it until it turns into butter. (Then my sister uses the left over buttermilk to make pancakes the next day, but I'm no where near that good.)

The kids have fun, it keeps them occupied, and they are very proud of the fact that their butter is served at dinner.
