Fun in the Kitchen

Hi again friends!

I am back again with another quick post to share a fun idea to do with you kiddies this summer.  Timmy and I just did a science experiment and made ice cream!

It is super yummy!   We got the idea from a class Timmy is taking this summer from Big Picture Classes.  Here are the deets:

Put these 3 ingredients into a small sandwich sized ziploc bag:
-1/2 cup milk, cream or half and half (we used cream as it was leftover from another recipe)
-1/4 tsp vanilla
-1 tbsp sugar

Next, fill a large ziploc bag with ice cubes and 6 tablespoons of rock salt and place the smaller bag inside as well.  Now shake for 5 - 10 minutes until the mixture sets.  Wash the rim outer edges of the small bag before scooping out the ice cream to avoid any salt transfer.

Note, this only makes a single serving so if you have a couple of kidlets you may want to let them each make their own batch.  We added fresh raspberries from our garden to ours to make it extra yummy.

Thanks for popping in again!
