Homemade ice cream with Sick Science!

Watch more with these video collections:

Legend has it that the Roman emperor, Nero, is credited as the first person to make ice cream. Nero commanded slaves to bring snow down from the mountains, which was then used to freeze the flavored cream mixture. The secret was to lower the freezing point of ice in order to freeze the cream. How? The scientific secret is salt!

Check out this recipe for homemade ice creamΒ from Sick Science! A perfect DIY for a long and/or warm weekend.
