No, it doesnít TASTE like a plastic bag; itís made IN a plastic bag. Thatís means thereís no machine and no fuss. Itís a fun, hands-on way to shake up your next party. Recipe contributor Shannon Jackson Arnold created it for her book, Everybody Loves Ice Cream: The Whole Scoop on Americaís Favorite Treat. She writes, ďFor a crowd, consider getting enough plastic bags, ice and rock salt for each person to make their own.Ē The ice cream will be soft and will taste oh-so-good.
1. Place half & half, sugar and vanilla in a one-quart plastic bag. Squeeze out excess air and seal tightly. Shake vigorously to ensure sugar is completely dissolved. Double-bag the first bag with a second one.
2. Place these bags inside a gallon-size bag. Add crushed ice and rock salt to the outer gallon-size bag. Squeeze out excess air and seal tightly. Place the bag inside a towel or put on gloves. Shake and massage the bag to work the ice around the ice cream mixture. When mixture firms up (in about 5-10 minutes), remove the quart bag from salt and ice. Serve immediately.
