~tin-can ice cream~

One of the kids' favorite things to do in the summer is make their own ice cream. It's so good and so rich, and the perfect treat for a hot summer afternoon. It's super simple to make and only uses a few ingredients. It's also a fun activity to do with friends or on a camping trip. 1 (3 lb.) clean coffee can with lid
1 (1 lb.) clean coffee with lid
2 or more kids
2 cups whipping cream
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Fruit (smashed), chocolate, etc. (optional)
Rock saltIce, or ice cream salt (crushed or small cubes)

Pour all food ingredients into 1-pound coffee can. Put lid on securely. Place inside 3-pound coffee can. Layer ice and salt around sides of small can. Put lid on 3-pound lid on. Roll briskly on hard ground for 10 minutes - cement works best.
Open lid and drain ice water. Open 1-pound lid and stir, scraping sides well. Put the lid back on. Re-pack big can with ice and salt. Re-lid and roll again.
Makes about 3 cups of ice cream.

Does this really work?? I have bought an ice cream freezer (maker) every year for three years. Each fall when the travelin' hubby cleans out the garage, he throws it away!! This year I refused to buy one, but desperately miss the ice cream (there is NOTHING like homemade ice cream)! We will try it this week!!! thanks for the idea! :) KIM

yup this does work :) we've done it in zip lock bags though and you just smash it with your hands. Put the ziplock of ingredients inside the ziplock of salt and toss and smash...mmmmm :) :)

We've had an electric ice cream maker for many years. The kids love home-made ice cream, so much that my step-kids request it just about every time their here. Need to find some good recipes though, always end up just making vanilla.
