We had record snowfall yesterday!!! Isn't it beautiful?
While helping our neighbor get up our street this morning, he asked if we had made snow ice cream yet.
Huh?...Never heard of it, but sounds fun.
Google to the rescue....
This recipe comes from Allrecipes.com:
1 gallon snow
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk
We had some leftover whipping cream, so I threw in the extra calories, because who doesn't love back fat?
Directions: When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. Serve at once.
(Since it had already stopped snowing, I located the cleanest snow and skimmed it off the top.)
It tasted pretty yummy--a lot like homemade ice cream. But most of all, it was fun!
- Eat it fast or freeze it. It melts quickly.
- Let your kids do it by themselves. It's so easy, and it's more about the memory, right?
