Last summer at church Family Camp in the Jemez Mountains, I had the kids make ice cream in a Ziploc bag. It was a big hit!
It's a great way to spend some time with your kids this summer making something they'll love to eat. It's also a great way to teach them patience.
HOMEMADE ICE CREAM IN A ZIPLOC BAG
There are all kinds of recipes to make homemade ice cream, I have many recipes as well but this is what I used this time:
1/2 C milk
1/2 C heavy whipping cream
1/4 C sugar or powdered stevia
1/2 t vanilla
quart size Ziploc
gallon size Ziploc
approx 2 C ice
1/2 C or more rock salt
All all your ingredients in a quart size Ziploc bag. Squeeze out air & seal tightly.
Put ice and rock salt in a gallon size Ziploc bag. Then add your quart size bag. Squeeze our most air and seal gallon size tightly.
Gently rock the bag back and forth and from side to side. Use gloves or a kitchen towel to prevent your hands from getting too cold. Canaan & I used oven hot padded gloves. Continue to rock for 10-15 minutes or until the contents have solidified into ice cream.
Remove the quart size bag and wash the ice & rock salt off with cold water because it will damage your hands. (We washed it off in the cold stream in front of the cabin.)
Open bag and serve as is or with toppings.
