Ice Cream - It's In The Bag

A fun, tasty experiment that transforms a liquid into a solid right before your eyes! 

materials for 1 quart ziploc bag:
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch table salt

You can add chocolate chips, cherries, etc in the bag as well. Seal bag and set aside.

materials for 1 gallon ziploc bag
1/2 cup rock salt
ice cubes - enough to fill the bag half full.

Put small sealed bag inside of the larger bag and seal. Now, smush, shake, and roll the bag for 10 to 15 minutes. Check out your liquid mixture, it's ice cream! Pull it out, grab a spoon, and enjoy!

Note: The ice cream will have a soft serve consistency. If you want it to harden up a bit, toss it in the freezer.
