One way we like to stay cool in the summer heat is to make ice cream in a bag!
There are several ways to do this, many of which don’t involve a bag, but I found a site with directions on making ice cream in a bag. I figured it looked easier and cleaner than making “real” ice cream.
We followed the directions and what do you know-we had ice cream! It wasn’t Ben & Jerry’s, but it was still good and cold, quite refreshing. I’m thinking that’s due in part to the use of half and half and not straight up cream.
Next time I think we’ll add vanilla bean paste instead of extract and I’ll look into the logistics of using cream instead.
Words of caution:
a) make this outside – our bags started to break a bit from all the shaking and salt; I had salt water everywhere
b) this is a workout…
