Homemade ice cream in a bag- camping recipe

We love homemade ice cream. The Easter Bunny brought our kids an ice cream maker this year, which is great for our severely food allergic child to have “safe” ice cream. But, sometimes, you want ice cream NOW and it’s just too much trouble to haul out the ice cream maker. Have no fear, ice cream in a bag is here!
Each person needs:
One large (gallon) and one small (quart or sandwich) Ziploc bag
In the small bag, pour ½ cup milk, 1-2 tablespoons sugar, ½ tsp vanilla
Fill the large bag about half full of ice, then add about 6 tablespoons of rock salt, or regular old table salt, if that’s all you have.
Place the small bag, sealed, inside the large bag and seal it.
Shake until the milk mixture turns into ice cream (should be less than 5 minutes).
This last step is very important! Take the small bag out and rinse it off…. Otherwise your ice cream may taste a little salty!
