With the days still being so hot, it seemed about time to try to make our own ice cream…in a bag! So after school today we got busy and mixed:
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup half and half cream
and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
Next we placed:
1/2 cup of coarse salt (we used table salt)
in a gallon-size bag. We put our smaller bag inside as well and sealed the larger bag shut. And shook it. And juggled it. And rolled it. And made a mess as the bag opened up spilling out ice cubes. We shook some more until our hands started showing signs of frost bite. A little over 5 minutes later our small bag of ice cream mixture had hardened!
