Rudy’s Recipe: Coffee Can Ice Cream

I have never made homemade ice cream, although I’ve eaten a lot of it. This recipe doesn’t sound difficult and I think it would be fun to try while camping!

Coffee Can Ice Cream

You Need:

Supplies …

  • 1 – 1 lb coffee can with lid
  • 1 – 3 lb coffee can with lid
  • duct tape for lid
  • crushed ice
  • rock salt

Ingredients …

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Chopped nuts, or pieces of fruit – optional

Make It:

Combine ingredients in a clean 1 lb coffee can with a tight fitting plastic lid. Tape lid for added security. Place 1 lb coffee can in 3 lb coffee can. Pack crushed ice around the smaller can. Pour almost 1 cup of rock salt over the ice. Replace lid on 3 lb can. Roll the can back and forth on the floor or sidewalk for 10 minutes.

Remove the inside can. Be careful when removing it . Keep salt solution out of the small can. Remove lid of small can and stir ice cream with a rubber spatula. Replace and re-tape the lid. Drain ice water from larger can and place smaller can inside.

Repack with ice and salt. Roll back and forth 5 – 10 minutes more depending on how firm you like your ice cream. Makes about 3 cups. Enjoy!
