It was a fun time and Kelsey loved it. Here is the recipe if you want to give it a try:
Put 2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract into a ziploc sandwich bag
Put the following into a gallon size ziplock bag:
1/2 cup salt (nice big granules, kosher or rock salt)
ice cubes - about 1/2 of the gallon bag worth
and the sandwich bag full of the yummy goods.
Now, shake and mush (technical term here) those bags until the mixture hardens and you have ice cream! It took us a little longer than 5 minutes.
Also, I thought that one of our ice cream bags had opened up into the salt bag because the icy saltwater was looking a little milky. It didn't though, and if it did, it wasn't very much.
