The ingredients: ( I made half batches for the youngest three and it was still plenty for them)
2 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
quart size ziploc bags
gallon size ziploc bags
Pour half and half, sugar, and vanilla into quart size ziploc bag. Seal.
Meanwhile place 4-6 cups ice and 1/2 cup rock salt into the gallon size bag.
Place sealed half and half mixture into the bag filled with ice and salt. Seal.
Toss, knead, wiggle, and whatever else you can think to keep the bags in motion for about 5 minutes (they used hot pad holders to keep their fingers from getting too frosty).
Half and half mixture will thicken into ice cream consistency after about five minutes.
Remove from bag, add desired toppings, and serve immediately.
