Your Ice Cream Is In The Bag
Grilling season is OFFICIALLY here now, and even if you’ve still got a little snow on the ground, it’s time to uncover the grill and start using it.
Grilling out is best when you’ve got a crowd, and family reunions are the best kind of crowd because they’re so often a mixture of generations – older people, children, and everything in between.
After all that excellent food is eaten, it’s time for dessert, and what dessert can rival Spicy Peach Ice Cream in a Baggie for delicious fun! Nobody is ever too old to play with their food!
Bear in mind that this recipe is for ONE BAGGIE of ice cream. Therefore, each individual will have to follow these directions with his/her own individual baggie of ice cream!
- 1/2 cup milk (any kind of milk will be fine, so depending on your dietary needs and what you’ve got on hand, feel free to use skim, 2%, whole, half-and-half, cream, almond, etc.)
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- 2 tablespoons of sugar (real or Splenda)
- 2 tablespoons finely diced peaches (canned, fresh, or frozen)
- 1 tablespoon of Texas Pepper Jelly’s Peachy Peach Rib Candy
- 4 cups of crushed ice
- 4 tablespoons salt
- 2 quart-size Zip-loc bag
- 1 gallon-size Zip-loc freezer bag
What to do:
Mix the milk, vanilla, sugar, peaches, and Rib Candy in the quart-size bag. Before sealing, try to force out as much air as possible, and then seal the bag. Double-check the seal – you don’t want ANY leakage. Put the filled bag inside the second bag and double-check that seal, too. (The two bags are JUST IN CASE you get a leak. . . .)
Place the two-quart bag inside the gallon bag. Fill the gallon bag with ice and sprinkle all of the salt on the ice. Let as much air as possible escape, and seal the bag. Double-check the seal!
Play with the bags. Toss them back and forth. Knead them. Play catch with them. Check the seals occasionally; if you get an inside leak, your ice cream is ruined.
After about 7 minutes, check the contents of your inner bag. You’ve probably got ice cream! If you don’t, play with the bags for a few more minutes.
Imagine the fun of a pleasant crowd of adults and children making Spicy Peach Ice Cream in a Baggie, in your backyard!
Once your mixture has turned to ice cream, remove the inner bag, rinse off the salt, open the bag, and dig in with a spoon!
Spicy Peach Ice Cream in a Baggie is awesome fun for reunions, parties (kids and adults!), and any kind of outdoor gathering. It’s more fun than a regular dessert, the peaches are good for you, and the Peachy Peach Rib Candy adds a little zing to your plain ice cream.
P.S. Here’s still another way to make ice cream, from science guy Steve Spangler!
P.P.S. You can use any of Texas Pepper Jelly’s pepper jellies or Rib Candies in your ice cream, with or without the fruit. If you do use fruit, try to match it with the flavor of pepper jelly or rib candy.
P.P.P.S. You can throw some chopped nuts in the bag, too!
