Oh boy, it is hot again here in London - it's that awful kind of humid where you just sweat and there's not even any sun! To cool us down and cheer us up I thought we'd cross something off our Bucket List and make Icecream in a Jar!
Here's how we did it...
Jars (we started off with these little jam jars, but I don't think they gave enough space to churn up the cream when I added the icecubes, so we swapped out for a big tupperware tub in the end!)
1. Test, smell, taste and touch your ingredients - this is a sensory exercise after all!
2. Pour your cream into your ziploc, add a splash of vanilla and a tablespoon of sugar
3. Slosh the bag around a bit to mix up the ingredients
4. Put the ice in your jar and add the salt - you need enough that the ice starts to crush and melt a little. Shake the jar around a bit to start the process
5. Put your sealed bag of cream into the jar with the ice and shake shake shake
6. After about 5-10 mins (by which time the kids will have abandoned the activity and will have left you shaking!) unzip your bag of icecream - grab a spoon and dig in!
I'm not sure this would pass any 'proper' icecream tests, but I hope this pic is testimonial enough...
