4 cups crushed ice
4 tablespoons salt
2 quart size Zip-loc bags
1 gallon size Zip-loc freezer bag
gloves  or towel to keep fingers from freezing
Mix the milk, vanilla and sugar together in one of the quart size bags.Seal tightly, allowing as little air to remain in the bag as possible.Too much air left inside may force the bag open during shaking. Placethis bag inside the other quart size bag, again leaving as little airinside as possible and sealing well. By double-bagging, the risk ofsalt and ice leaking into the ice cream is minimized. Put the two bagsinside the gallon size bag and fill the bag with ice, then sprinklesalt on top. Again let all the air escape and seal the bag. Wrap thebag in the towel or put your gloves on, and shake and massage the bag,making sure the ice surrounds the cream mixture. Five to eight minutesis adequate time for the mixture to freeze into ice cream.
