Make Your Own Ice Cream


  • One quart-sized zip-top bag
  • One gallon-sized zip-top bag
  • 4 cups ice
  • 6 tbsp rock salt
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp white sugar

What to Do:

  1. Add the ice and rock salt to the gallon-sized bag. Shake to coat.
  2. Combine half-and-half, sugar, extract, and a pinch of salt in the quart-sized bag. Seal it tight, getting all the air out.
  3. Nestle the small bag of ice cream mixture into the large bag of ice, so that the ice surrounds it. Seal the large bag tightly.
  4. Now shake, shake, shake it up! After about 5 minutes, your sweet treat will be ready to eat!
