I mean which kid doesn't love jelly and icecream right? Well if your kids don't - swap them over for mine - that means more jelly and icecream for me... just kidding!
The thing is when you make jelly and icecream - it's awfully time consuming. Every time you open the fridge the chorus: 'Mum is the jelly set yet?' I remember saying it to my own Mum. Icecream when you make it does take a while too so when I saw the cold set jelly in the supermarket last week (yes, it wasn't sent to me, no I'm not getting paid to write this - hehe) I couldn't resist. I had to see if it worked.
So we made it - it's basically cold water and crystals like normal, stir them in, put it in the fridge and 40 minutes later - jelly ready to eat. I LOVE that! (And I'm not alone!)
But whilst we were waiting that whole.forty.minutes. I got busy preparing to make quickie icecream. You'll need for each child 1 snack sized ziplock bag, 1 large sandwich sized ziplock bag, milk, vanilla, rock salt and ice. Lots of ice.
First of all fill your snack ziplock bag with 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Seal it on up.
Then in your large bag add 6 tablespoons of rock salt (don't ask me why it's rock salt, I just do as I'm told...)
Fill over the top of your salt with ice, until you're about half way up to the top of the bag. Put the snack bag with the milk in it into the large bag with ice and salt and seal up the large bag.
Shake for about 10 minutes - the kids will love doing this and the key is making sure the ice is moving around the milk bag. After the 20 minutes or so, remove the milk bag and rinse under cold water to get all the salt off it.
Look freezy ice!
Mix with your jelly and get onto devouring. Personally I want to try it with vanilla custard - I think it will be more 'ice-creamy' ...
What do you think? Would you give it a go?
