Weekend Recipe: Ice Cream

We've had a heat wave this week so when I saw this blog post about making homemade ice cream I knew we had to do it. This isn't the first time hubby or I have made ice cream. Memories of high school chemistry class came flooding back to both of us.

We made 4 bag so each of us could have our own bag. We also double bagged them to prevent leaking because salty ice cream isn't tasty.

Ice cream ingredients (per bag):
  • 1 Cup Half & Half
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar

We then put the bags in a canister with ice and kosher salt (about 1/2 cup of salt per 1/2 of gallon of ice). The kids had a blast helping us roll and shake it until the ice cream formed (about 10 minutes for us).

The only thing left to do was to add toppings and enjoy! Yum!!
