homemade ice cream

gathering ingredients

ingredients needed:
milk (any kind)
crushed ice
vanilla or strawberry flavoring or cocoa powder
gallon size ziploc bags
sandwich size ziploc bags

Joshua crushing ice

add crushed ice to big ziploc bag
add 1/2 cup salt to bag

mix 1 cup milk, 4 tsp. sugar, & flavoring
test to see if you like the taste
if so put mixture in small ziploc bag
remove almost all air (we used a straw to do so)
seal bag
put this bag inside another small ziploc bag seal this bag as well

open up large bag again
add small bag to large bag of ice
[you can put up to two small bags in at a time (to say make one vanilla & one chocolate]
seal large bag
put inside pillowcase

and then...

shake for about 15 min.

have youngest taste it just in case (lol!)

YUM!!! it passed our seal of approval, plus we got a work out too (all the shaking)

[Josh got this kit for Christmas, which had flavorings in it and these instructions, and we love it, but you can get flavorings at food store in baking isle]
