How Stuff Works: http://www.howstuffworks.com/

Ice Cream in a Baggie
1 gallon baggie
sandwich size baggie
ice
rock salt
1 cup whole milk or half and half
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Put the milk and a little sugar in the sandiwich baggie. MAKE SURE IT IS SEALED AND THERE IS NO AIR IN THE BAGGIE. Place this inside the gallon baggie with a half cup of ice and a tablespoon of rock salt. Seal this
bag - with very little air in the bag. Squish the inner bag (if it isn't sealed or if there is air in the inner bag, you now have a mess) until the ice cream is made - about 10-15 minutes. Do not add too much vanilla - remember real vanilla has alcohol in it and will interfere with the freezing.
