2 cups half and half (chilled)
cup sugar
1 Tbsp Vanilla extract
1 pint-sized zip top FREEZER Bag
1 gallon-sized zip top FREEZER Bag
3 cups Ice
1 Tbsp Rock Salt
1 roll duct tape
4 large sheets Newspaper

Work rapidly:
Combine all food ingredients in pint-sized bag and be careful to fully seal the bag.

Add ice, rock salt, and pint-sized bag to gallon-sized bag.

Wrap gallon-sized bag with 4 sheets of newspaper
Criss-cross with duct-tape to secure.

Give assembly to two Scouts with instructions to keep it moving. The mixture must be as agitated as possible.

After 10 -15 minutes of shaking, twirling, and tossing, cut open and eat vanilla ice cream.

Variations: Experiment by putting various fruit in the bag for different ice cream flavors.

Fresh fruit gets crushed, but still tastes good. Fruit preserves hold up better, but decrease the sugar a bit.

Use 2 Tbsp of chocolate syrup and skip the vanilla extract for chocolate ice cream.
