If you like homemade ice cream, but don’t like the large quantities that most ice cream makers produce, check out the Sassafras Ice Cream Maker from Sassafras Enterprises. This little ice cream maker produces about 1 pint total, and you can even make two flavors at once. You don’t need salt, and you don’t have to hand crank the maker for hours. You just load in the raw ingredients, then put the maker into the freezer for four hours. It’s a great size for a couple of kids or for people who don’t want to keep larger quantities of ice cream around. The Sassafras Ice Cream Maker requires 4AA batteries, not included. It’s $29.99 at Sassafras or about $21 at Amazon. Suitable for ages 5 and up.
