Nothing beats the taste of real homemade ice cream. My husband loves ice cream and he asks for it year-round whether it’s 90F in July or -35F in January. While we do buy ice cream from the store, it’s so much more fun to make your own ice cream from scratch. Plus, when you make it from scratch you can control the ingredients you add which is vital for anyone with food intolerances or allergies.

Ice Cream Maker With No Rocksalt

I use a Midas ice cream maker which is really neat because it doesn’t use electricity or rock salt. If you want homemade ice cream with no rocksalt, that’s what you need. You put the unit in the freezer (or outside in the snow like I did). You add the ingredients depending on what recipe you’re following. Then, you put it back in the freezer or snow for 15 minutes. You stir and repeat until it is as thick as you want. The longer you freeze it, the more solid it will become.

Of course, if you don’t have a Midas ice cream maker, you can do the same thing in a large bowl with a lid or even a soup pot. The important thing is that you stir it regularly so it’s not hard as a rock. You may have to leave it in a little bit longer for it to firm up.

Or, try this ice cream maker. It works wonderfully with no rocksalt.

How does an ice cream maker with no rocksalt work?

It basically works by simply freezing the ingredients. By you mixing them regularly, you prevent them from freezing solid which will leave you with ice cream rather than a frozen solid block of milk and cream.

Homemade ice cream ingredients

This is what you need to make to make the recipe I use with an ice cream maker with no rocksalt.

  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups mashed fresh strawberries

a bowl of ice cream with cream and berries

Of course, if you prefer, you can make this ice cream in a different flavor. Leave out the strawberries and make vanilla ice cream. Or, you can stir in some cocoa for chocolate ice cream. Try raspberry, blueberry, peach, or whatever other flavors you think would be good.  I have used this same recipe to make chocolate chip ice cream by stirring in a handful of chocolate chips. Get creative and enjoy!

  1. Hi Cygnus - You're very welcome. I figure if the freezer is on anyway than my tossing in the ice cream maker isn't adding anything else to it :)

  2. I love it! And in houston, not so much snow either; come a long hot summer garden session and use the freezer... Volia! [I'd kinda feel guilty, b/c the freezer uses elect., but it's already plugged in anyways... rationalizing, but true!]

    Thanks for the link!
