2. Starting with ice, alternate layers of ice and salt between the outside of the small can and the inside of the three-pound can, packing the ice down as you go.
3. When the layers get to the top of the small can, cover the entire lid with ice. Then place the lid on the three-pound can, making sure it fits tightly.
4. Set the can on the floor, and gently roll it back and forth. You may need to wrap a small towel around the outside of the large can so it will stick to your hands. Roll the can for at least ten minutes. The ice inside the can will get watery, but keep on rolling!
5. After rolling, put the can upright. Remove the towel and lid from the big can, and slowly pull the small can out of the big can. Wipe the ice and salt from the lid; then remove the lid carefully.
6. The ice cream will be frozen to the sides and bottom of the can. (If it is not thick enough, put the can in a freezer. Check it every ten minutes or so.) When it is thick enough, stir the icy parts off the sides and bottom into the mixture until it's smooth and creamy.
