5 Minute Ice cream with 2 Zip bags. Mix 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 cup of cream, vanilla essence and pour into one of the small bags and lock. Fill half of a larger bag with ice, add ½ cups of large grain salt, and place the small bag inside, lock. Shake the bag for 5 minutes, open the large bag and see if the ice cream has turned solid. If not continue shaking, Rinse the small bag in cold water to wash off the salt. Get a spoon! And indulge!
