Shake and Make Ice Cream

You will need:
2 Tblsp sugar
1 Cup milk or half and half
1/2 tsp vanilla
6 Tblsp rock salt
1 pint-sized plastic sip bag..not the cheap ones, you will need a strong bag
1 gallon-sized plastic sip bag

How to make it:"
1. Fill the gallon-sized plastic sip bag half full with ice. Add rock salt and seal
2. Pour the sugar, milk/half and half, and vinilla into the pint-sized sip bag and seal.
3. Place the pint-sized zip bag into the gallon-sized bag and seal.
4. Shake the bag for 5-7 minutes.
5. Open the small zip bag and enjoy.

Please note: If the small bag comes open it will not help your ice cream to taste better...rock salt, ewwww. I have also done this with a small coffee can inside a large coffee can. We rolled them back and forth between two people on the floor. It gets pretty cold so we wore oven mits, but you can also wrap the zip bags in a towel to avoid frozen fingers.

You can add 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract of 3 Tbsp of crushed peppermint stick to make a fun holida ice cream.
