Homemade Ice Cream Using Empty Coffee Cans


Old coffee cans lying around? Put them to good use and whip up some old-fashioned homemade ice cream. Yumi Sakugawa of WonderHowTo sketched up an infographic detailing just how to do it.

Mix together whole milk, whipping cream, and sugar in an empty 1 pound coffee can. Close the lid and shake vigorously. Place the coffee can containing the ingredients into a larger coffee can. Pack the empty space with ice cubes and rock salt, close lid, and roll the two coffee cans for ten minutes.
