Make Your Own Ice Cream

7 posts in this topic

I'm starting to think there is a secret war on ice cream going on with all the recent recalls. 

 

A couple of days ago Blue Bell pulled their ice cream off the shelves nationwide due to listeria. http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Texas-Stores-Pulling-All-Blue-Bell-Ice-Cream-Products-300734351.html

 

Today, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams is recalling all its products from retailers and closing ice cream shops in six states over concerns about possible listeria contamination.http://www.myfoxchicago.com/story/28883710/listeria-concerns-spark-recall-by-jenis-splendid-ice-creams

 

I think the FDA and the Federal Government should launch a full investigation into this listeria hysteria as this is obviously an act of ice cream terrorism.

With warm weather approaching and America's favorite summer treat ripped from the store shelves, how will parents reward their children after baseball practice or for a job well done?  How will we cleanse our pallets when dining? What will depressed women do when they can't crawl up on the couch and cry with a pint of ice cream and a chick flick? No more ice cream socials either.

In the mean time as a public service to all ice cream lovers, I have found a solution. Simply make your own ice cream.

Neat!

I've always done it the baggie way.

Make Ice Cream in a Plastic Bag

1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups crushed ice
4 tablespoons salt
2 quart size Zip-loc bags
1 gallon size Zip-loc freezer bag
a hand towel or gloves to keep fingers from freezing as well!

Mix the milk, vanilla and sugar together in one of the quart size bags. Seal tightly, allowing as little air to remain in the bag as possible. Too much air left inside may force the bag open during shaking. Place this bag inside the other quart size bag, again leaving as little air inside as possible and sealing well. By double-bagging, the risk of salt and ice leaking into the ice cream is minimized. Put the two bags inside the gallon size bag and fill the bag with ice, then sprinkle salt on top. Again let all the air escape and seal the bag. Wrap the bag in the towel or put your gloves on, and shake and massage the bag, making sure the ice surrounds the cream mixture. Five to eight minutes is adequate time for the mixture to freeze into ice cream.

Thanks for the recipe Lucy! I know you can make ice cream in a bag but I thought the blender idea looked sort of fun. I'm going to try it and will let you know if it works.

With the unique Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker, you can make ice cream while on camping trips, at picnics, barbecues, and many other places. You don't need electricity to make great tasting ice cream, but rather just add ice and rock salt in one end...
