vanilla ice cream

Making ice cream is now a team sport thanks to the Play & Freeze Ice Cream Ball, (now don’t get any funny ideas) and it’s a real riot. I can now make ice cream anywhere, anytime, any place with no electricity required.

I’m not so sure that’s a good thing, but it means we can now have ice cream when we’re camping or in a power failure. And of course, that’s the first thing we all think of when the power goes out … “get the ball, let’s make ice cream.” Check out the above link for all the sordid details but the gist is it’s an acrylic ball with a stainless cylinder insert, both ends open, ice and rock salt go in one end, the ice cream ingredients go in the cylinder end, screw tops on and tighten with the handy wrench that comes with it and get busy! Toss it, pass it, roll it, just keep it moving and in a few minutes, tada … ice cream! It gives a whole new meaning to pass the ball. Check it out … the ball in action! And if you don’t have a ball, you can use a bag or a can.
