Lately, several of our OFL's have talked about wanting ice cream. Susi our family member from deep east Texas has given us an incredibly simple recipe for making ice cream in a zip lock bag! I would make some now, but I'm out of cream, so it's on the grocery list. Take a look:
For those of you needing ice cream- here is a great way to make it that tastes just like the old fashioned home made! We made it in our Science class when I was teaching 3rd grade and then I modified it for Low Carbing!
Zip-lock bag Ice Cream
1/2 c. heavy cream
1/4-1/2 c water
2 t. vanilla
sweetener to taste
Put all of the above in a small zip lock bag. Close securely. Then put the small bag in to a large zip-lock bag- add 2 cups of ice and about 1 T table salt. Close the bag and shake for about 5-7 minutes. Eat it out of the bag! You will see it start to get hard.
My daddy used to love for me to make this for him when they lived with us for a while. You can experiment with the water to heavy cream ratio- water of course freezes faster and harder- so the more you have the harder it will get. You can also add choc syrup or cocoa for chocolate. Now it gets cold and drips everywhere so do it outside or over the sink. You will love it!
