Fringe Cooking – Easy Vanilla Ice Cream


So, I’ve just coined a new cooking term. Proud of me? You shouldn’t be. I’m not that smart. Anyhow, fringe cooking is cooking on the edge, using odd tools to get the job done. “You want that manifold steak medium rare honey, because we’re approaching a freeway exit.” Fringe cooking was probably coined by Dian Thomas, though she calls it “Roughing it Easy”. Growing up we used the Dian Thomas method of cooking. My parents scoured that book for ideas camping, and I was elated to find the new edition that came out a few years ago. Bought my own copy, I did!

This is easy cooking. Mix some stuff up, put it in a small can, put the small can in a big can, add some ice and salt and kick it around the floor for a while. Fun for the whole family! Tastes good too!

Still needs some stirrin’.

Nested Paint Cans
0 Degrees Celsius
30 minutes

1 quart unused paint can
1 gallon unused paint can

1/2 pint cream
1/2 quart half and half
1 1/2 cups sugar

Mix all ingredients in small can, sealing well. Nest in large can with ice and salt, sealing well. Roll on ground or shake vigorously for 10 minutes. Stir. Repeat. Stir. Repeat. Enjoy.

The can – in – can method. Fun for the whole family!
