Thanks for the compliment! Whether, Frozen Custard, French Ice Cream, or French Custard Ice Cream it was definitely awesome...One that my family prefers over Philadelphia Ice Cream......

I just saw a recipe in Woman's World magazine that showed you can use freezer bags to make ice cream! A smaller bag with the ice cream ingredients, then put that in a larger bag with the ice and salt. Roll it around a bit then freeze in the freezer. Reminds me that we did something similar using coffee cans nesting in one another at Girl Scout camp. A good way to test if I would like to have an ice cream machine on hand! (my husband insists I will use it once then store it away)

I have done this a few times when camping. People are amazed when I am setting there eating fresh ice cream.

1 cup milk, 2 tbls sugar, a little vanilla. Place that in a quart ziplock bag and seal.
In a gallon zip lock fill 1/4 way with ice add some small rock salt. Place the quart bag in the gallon bag and seal. Agitate fairly aggressively in the shade for ~10 minutes and you have ice cream. It won't be really hard, it's like the ice cream in a soft serve cone as to solidness.

Oh...and I forgot to add..When the Ice Cream freezes it's important to let it "ripen" for a couple of hours. In the Hand Cranked machines this means removing the dasher, scraping it down, packing the freezer with ice, sprinkling on a little Ice Cream Salt, and covering with a folded towel...When I was a kid I used to hate that part...I wanted some right now, but the old folks wouldn't have it any other way...So I was given the dasher to lick on to after it was scraped down........
