If you enjoyed the idea of Ice Cream in a Bag described in The Goodbye Quilt by Susan Wiggs, I think you'll enjoy this similar recipe for Coffee Can Ice Cream. Especially fun for children and grandchildren!
Coffee Can Ice Cream1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
¼ cup sugar
1-pound coffee can with lid
Sturdy rubber band
3-pound coffee can with lid
Box of salt
1. Mix together the whipping cream, vanilla, and sugar. Pour this into the 1-pound coffee can. The can should be about ¾ full. If it isn’t, you can stir in more whipping cream.2. Put the top on tightly. Cover it with a piece of plastic wrap held by a rubber band.
3. Set the 1-pound can in the center of the 3-pound can. Put a layer of crushed ice about 2 inches thick in the bottom of the large can around the small can. Then sprinkle ¼ cup of salt on top of the ice. Continue layering the ice and salt until the can is almost full. Put the top on the can.
4. Sit on the floor and roll the can back and forth with a partner. In 15 minutes, check the ice cream by carefully opening the inside can. Be careful not to get any of the salt water in the ice cream.
5. When the ice cream is frozen, enjoy it!
