Make Ice Cream, in a Mason Jar.

Making ice cream at home feels like alchemy, a complex process of mixing and cooling.

Now that summer is fast approaching, maybe try it out. You donít even need a fancy ice-cream maker. All you really need is heavy cream, a Mason jar and strong forearms. Itís a fun at-home project and so easy a child could be in charge.

Basic Mason Jar Ice Cream
Ingredients
1 cup heavy cream

1 Ĺ tablespoons granulated sugar

1 Ĺ teaspoons vanilla extract

A pinch of salt

A 16 oz Mason jar, of course.
Yield: About three servings.

Steps
1. Pour the cream, sugar, vanilla and salt into the jar, and screw on the lid tightly.

2. Shake vigorously, until the cream thickens and almost doubles in size, which should take about five minutes. Youíll know youíre done when the mixture doubles in volume and is about the consistency of brownie batter.

3. Freeze for at least 3 hours. Then eat. Youíre welcome.'>>>

1. I just made coffee icecream in my cuisinsrt using Starbucks instant coffee.

If you use one package of instant Colombian Starbucks coffee in your Mason jar and increase the sugar it would work with all the other ingredients.

3. Sounds good, coffee ice cream's my favorite,

7. Another good method to try...

Take those same ingredients and put them in a quart size ziplock. Put that inside a gallon size zip lock and then fill the gallon bag with ice. Toss, shake, etc. It will turn to ice cream.

6. Sounds like making butter.

Cream + Mason jar (shake) = butter

9. Do you remove the lid before freezing?

To avoid a risk of expansion causing the jar to burst?

10. I wouldn't think it necessary

The liquid only takes up half the space which means the rest is air which will compress. If you were worried about it you could leave the jar upright with the lid on loosely, but I don't think you'd need to bother.

11. Wonder if this would work with coconut milk.

I am loving store-bought coconut milk ice cream, with less sugar, too, itís so good.

14. Made it this week end. Good, but not great, it is a non industrial treat.
