Pint-size baggies – heavy duty
Gallon-size baggies – heavy duty
1. Fill the large bag about ½ full of ice. Add 6 tablespoons of rock salt to the ice.
2. Put ½ cup of milk, ¼ teaspoon of vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of sugar into a smaller baggie and seal. Put this inside another small baggie and seal. This will prevent saltwater from seeping into your ice cream.
3. Place the double bagged small baggie into the larger baggie and seal.
4. Shake the baggie until you have ice cream.
5. Remove the smaller baggie from the larger one. Wipe off the water, then open it carefully and enjoy your ice cream!
