Ziploc ice cream

After you've finished your brunch of Ziploc Omelets, perhaps you'd care for a bit of dessert: Ziploc ice cream! (Thanks for the recipe, Jill.)


Fill a pint Ziploc bag with 1/2 cup milk (I suggest whole milk), 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla.  Place sealed pint bag into gallon bag and add ice to fill the gallon bag halfway and 6 Tablespoons salt.  Zip (and maybe double bag it), then shake, toss and play catch for 5 to 10 minutes.  Kids might want mittens!

Make sure to rinse the bags really well before opening to eat the ice cream. The salt can hide in the little ridges of the opening and can easily ruin the tast of the icecream. Well rinsed, this is a really fun thing to do.

thanks for the "rinse REALLY WELL" tip..
a little watery to my taste but at least i know for sure what went into it..
was thinking of employing a washer for tumbling.. lol. just kidding :)

Sounds fun to try! A thought about the salt getting in...tape the top of the inside bag?

How about air cycle of dryer?
