Snow Cream

Yesterday we experienced what was deemed the blizzard of 2008. I'm sure to many of you, our foot of fallen snow (drifts in our area up to 4 feet) is business as usual. Here, however, this is big news!

Basic Recipe

1 cup milk or whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar (or honey)
very scant 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla beans
large bowl of clean snow (about 3 quarts)

Blend milk, sugar and vanilla. Stir in enough snow to make snow cream to an ice cream consistency. Continue to beat with whisk or beaters until completely mixed. Then freeze for approximately 30 minutes, stirring in 3-5 minute intervals.

Instructions are as follows:

Step One: Find a good-looking husband to point out a fabulous place to gather your snow

Step Two: Collect snow in large mixing bowl

Step Three: Add all ingredients & freeze/stir

Step Four: Let the kids enjoy it and then bounce off the walls from all the sugar



A word on cleanliness; ALWAYS make sure the snow is clean. Wait for at least two to three hours of falling snow to clean the pollutants from the air, then use only snow that
has fallen after that first cleansing snow. Find snow that is in 'unpolluted' areas free from animals or foot traffic.

My kids love making this too and we've had plenty of snow this year.

YUM YUM. I love snow cream. Another easy way to make it is:
1 can Eagle Brand milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3-4 quarts clean snow

mix and enjoy!
