How to make ice cream at home - the five minute method

Put enough ice in the garbage bag to half fill it and add in the rock salt. Now seal the garbage bag. Mix up the milk, vanilla and sugar and put the mixture into the Ziploc bag and seal. Put the Ziploc bag inside the garbage bag and seal the garbage bag again. Now you need to spend about five minutes shaking the bag. This is the hard bit! Open the Ziploc bag and you should have a good consistency of mixture similar to store bought ice cream. So that's how to make ice cream at home in five minutes!

Plus recipes for ice cream with fruit pieces or nuts mixed in. Some recipes also contain eggs or cream.
