How to make ice cream

Updated on April 25, 2013

Home made ice cream in zip-lock bags

Ice Cream in a Bag This is SOOO easy… and delicious! In a small Ziplock bag, put: 1/2 C. half and half (milk works too) 1 Tbps. sugar 1 tsp. vanilla Insert that bag into a larger, one gallon Ziplock filled with 1/2 bag of ice and 1/2 cup of salt, I used sea salt. Shake the bag for five minutes. Kids love that part! Then, remove the smaller bag which should have turned into ice cream.

Mmmm ice cream

Now is the time to make ice cream!

To make your own ice cream is smart in many ways. First you can use the flavour that is your and your families favourites.

Then it is much much cheaper than buy ice cream in a store. Sometimes there are ingrediances you do not want too. The ice cream maker is paid in half a year in a medium size family!

So I recommend that you go ahead! Buy a maker and start make your own ice cream!

One recipe I can suggest for a start:

6 eggs - separate the white from the yokes
10-12 tablespoons sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 cup brandy (can be left out)
1/4 cup rum (can be changed into arrak)
2 tablespoons dry sherry
1 cup milk
2 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg grate it fresh!

Cook the egg yokes, sugar, salt, (brandy), rum and/or sherry in a double boiler until very light and thickened.

Remove from heat, add the milk and cream. Let it cool.

Beat the egg whites until stiff, fold them in the cream mixture. Pour into a ice creammachine and process according to manufacturer's directions.

You can always add your personal favourite flavour to this. But the eggnog will taste like something else=)

I would love to hear from you!

      Do you know why most crocheters in eleairr eras held the crochet hook in their hand like a pencil? In the 1800s, this hand positioning was thought to be more feminine and graceful. Many crocheters now hold their hooks in the palms of their hands (often called the knife hold ) to reduce carpal tunnel. I thought this was interesting! Thanks for sharing Jayna:)

      Hmm, this makes me think of looking for an ice cream maker next time I go to the appliance center. My husband and little angel both love ice cream.
