Here are 5 different ways to make your own ice-cream!!
This can only be done with a commercial product that mixes ice cream within a specially made ball with two chambers.
Coffee Can Method
This is very similar to the bag method, except instead of using two bags, you use two coffee cans, one bigger than the other.
The Freezer Bag Method
This is good for making individual servings of ice cream to be eaten promptly after making.
The Freezer Method
This method works best with a custard-based recipe that incorporates eggs, because the result will be much smoother. Since it involves a good bit of waiting, however, it may not be the most immediately gratifying for kids.
This is how ice cream was typically made before modern refrigeration, using ice cut from lakes and ponds. Hand-cranked ice cream machines are a variation of the sorbetière (a covered pail with a handle attached to the lid) which is a French adaptation of the pot-freezer method.
