coffee can icecream

 

 1lb coffee can
2-3lb coffee cans*
*(the cans need to be metal for the cold factor, but plastic lids are great! i was able to find  kroger brand still does metal! everyone else has gone plastic...)
1 pint half and half
1/3 c sugar
vanilla bean
rock salt 
ice
duct tape
any other toppings or fun flavors...it might be fun to crush up ginger snaps or cookies or add fresh fruit!

 

pour cream and sugar into smaller can, seal, and duct tape...
place in the larger metal can, fill with ice and rock salt alternatively, seal, and duct tape...
kick or roll the can for 10 minutes!
open the larger can and pour out water
open the smaller can and scrape ice cream off of sides and give a good stir. now is a good time to add any flavors like vanilla bean, fruit, or crushed cookies...
replace lid on smaller and seal again with duct tape. place inside large can, add more ice and salt, and reseal with lid and duct tape.
roll another 10 minutes...
unwrap everything and enjoy!
