Homemade Ice Cream in a Ziplock Baggie

This recipe came from another online mom.  We made it last month and I hope we can make it again this summer. This is a great recipe that the kids can help make too.

1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup half & half
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
6 tablespoons rock salt
1 pint-size Ziploc bag
1 gallon-size Ziploc bag
Ice cubes

Make sure you buy the ziplock brand or the heavy duty/freezer baggies.  They hold up a lot better than the store brand for this project. 
Fill large bag half full of ice, and add rock salt. Seal bag.

Put milk, vanilla, and sugar into the small bag, and seal it.

Place small bag inside large one, and seal again carefully.
Shake until the mixture is ice cream, (approx. 5 minutes). (Suggestion: Shake it outside.  I did not have the ziplock brand or the freezer bags and the bags got holes in them.  The salt water dripped on the kitchen and patio floor.)
Wipe off the top of the small bag, then open it carefully, so you do not get any of the salt into the ice cream.
This recipe makes approximately 1 scoop of ice cream.  It is so yummy.
