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
- 1 – 1 lb coffee can with lid
- 1 – 3 lb coffee can with lid
- duct tape for lid
- crushed ice
- rock salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Chopped nuts, or pieces of fruit – optional
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!
