i did this about like an hour ago, i used watered condensed milk but it won't turn into creamy texture! i already put the salt in but it won't work and now i'm putting it on the freezer! help
Since my family likes ice cream, and I happen to have a 4 quart ice cream maker, I think im going to make this recipe tomorrow.

Do you crush the ice cubes before you put them in with the vanilla salt and milk?
I don't think so, the vanilla, milk and sugar is in the small bag, which is in the big bag where the ice and salt is.

I tried the recipe. I shook the big bag abd the small one, but after a good 7 minutes of shaking it was like icecream that melts- creamy but not solid. What did I do wrong? I double-bagged the small one to avoid salt leaking in, and only had about 1 and a half traysworth of ice. What could have affected it turning out so... bleh? (By the way, Im freezing it now, will that ruin it?)
try what i did blend it instead of using a bag it comes out with a texture slightly thinner than a Wendy's frosty
oh no its kumon i have to do it and i am at lvl g and it is boring easy and hopfully i will be able to drop out soon and i agree with freakinslop it is pure evil

also, i'd puy food coloring in the chocolate icecream. if not the coco is in there like little specks

to avoid the salt perdicament, put the bag with the cream mix into another bag. shaking might take longer though

It's... decent but the problem is the salt seeps in and ruins everything so i'd try without the salt

I am going to try it right now! I'll tell you afterwards how it turns out... HOPEFULLY GOOD!!! so excited.

Just curious, would it make a difference if I only used one tray of ice? I don't really have enough trays ):

This was good. Couple of notes: 1) Vanilla flavor was a little stronger than it needed to be in my batch. 1/8 tsp may be sufficient 2) I only had to shake for about 5 minutes, not 10 3) I used a quart sized ziplock as my large bag, and a sandwich sized one as the small bag, and it worked fine. Less ice is needed with these sizes, of course. 4) Be very careful when extracting the ice cream from the inner bag not to let the saltwater drip into the bowl. Salt does not improve the taste of this treat!

Can you puree a fruit, (per say, strawberries?) then add to the smaller bag mixture?
jinonaspa6 years ago
great idea, i just tried it! it's soooooo good, if you want a flavor then just add it (if it is smushable) such as strawberries and blueberries. It was a good, one-serving ice cream

can you use regular salt or do you have to use rock salt does it still turn out the same?
I think you can use normal salt because it's there to make it have a low freezing point

Why do you have to use rock salt? Can you use regular salt for the same results?

I've read this somewhere before... Can't remember where... Anyway this looks yum!!! (Or how do I know you didn't take the smaller bag out, fill it with store-bought ice-cream and put it back in to take more photos???)
dsman1952766 years ago
the last time i did this i took the smaller bag with the ingredients and put it in a coffee can filled with ice, salt, and water. then just roll it around until the ice cream is ready.
Oh wow I've got to try this!!! It looks yummy! By the way, can somebody tell me what is wrong with double posting? I'm new and i don't get it.
Double posting is when you post two comments on one 'ible. It is looked down upon in my book, but not really unless yo pass 3 posts.
