Handmade Ice Cream

This is one recipie the kids will love helping out with after dinner!

1 cup milk
1 cup half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries or strawberries
1 quart sized Ziploc Bag
1 gallon sized Ziploc bag
Duct Tape
2 pounds crushed ice or ice cubes
1 cup coarse rock salt
1/2 cup water

In a medium bowl mix together milk, half-and-half, vanilla, and sugar. If adding fruit, mix all ingredients together in blender. Pour into a quart sized Ziploc bag. Squeeze out excess air and seal with duct tape. Put the quart sized bag into the gallon sized bag and fill the gallon bag with ice, salt and water. Squeeze excess air out of bag and seal with duct tape. Toss the bag up and down for about ten minutes. Use a hand towel to prevent hands from getting cold. When ice cream is frozen, rinse off the quart size bag and cut off a corner of the bag. Squeeze ice cream into a paper cup or bowl and enjoy! Makes a 1 1/2 cup serving.

For chocolate lovers, crush up your favorite candy bar and add a Tablespoon of Malt instead of the fruit.
