Want to have some fun on a rainy, humid afternoon? Try this great idea, sent to me by Paul Burzynski!
Ice Cream in a Bag
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 cup half and half
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup salt (Kosher or rock salt work best, but table salt also works just fine)
1 pint Ziploc bag
1 gallon Ziploc bag
Ice cubes (enough to fill the gallon sized bag half full)
Combine sugar, half and half, and vanilla in the pint sized bag. Seal tightly.
Place the ice and the salt in the gallon bag. Place the smaller sealed bag inside the larger sealed bag. Seal the larger bag. Shake the bags until the mixture hardens, about 5 minutes. Feel the small bag to determine when it’s ready.
Take the smaller bag out of the larger one, and add in mix-ins, like candy or sprinkles. Eat the ice cream right out of the bag. Enjoy!
