What You Will Need…
*You will need two coffee cans… one should be 3 pounds in size. The second should be a one pound size can.
*The one pound can should fit quite nicely into the three pound size coffee can with the lid fitting tightly in place.
*Fill the smaller can with the ice cream ingredients and then place inside the larger can.
*Fill the area around the smaller can with crushed ice and rock salt. To be sure that there will be no accidents, tape the lids of both cans. Duct tape comes in really handy lol!!
*To make the ice cream, you will need a small group of people. If you have kids, you are in luck. They will love to help you make dessert. All they will have to do is roll the can back and forth for about 15 minutes or so. That should be enough time to thicken the ice cream!
*Just about any ice cream recipe that you will find will worth with this method, so all you have to do is choose one that appeals to you!!

1. Put on an apron before you begin baking
2. Read the recipe twice… chances are you will miss something first time around.
3. Place a sheet of paper over the recipe page that you aren’t using. Trust me, it is very easy to start following the directions of the wrong recipe.
4. Place all ingredients on the counter ahead of time. That way you will know if you have every ingredient you need.
5. Keep all of your measuring cups and spoons in one drawer. It’s easier to find them that way! And you might want to have more than one set. Again, it just makes things that much easier.
Cleaning the Kitchen
1. Fill the sink with hot soapy water and as you use items, drop them in the water to soak.
2. When you are taking items out of the refrigerator, spot check to see if any shelves need to be wiped down. Doing it on a regular basis makes the job that much easier.
3. Same goes for the stove. Wipe the surface every time you use it and check the oven as well. Burnt on spills wipe up easier if they haven been baked on numerous times
