It’s delicious! Snow ice cream is also fun to make–especially for the kiddies.
When I was very young, back in the 20th century, my grandma would make snow cream whenever we had a “big” snow, meaning one that was big enough to scoop up in her tin pan.
It’s easy to make:
1 dish pan of snow (about a gallon)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups milk (or evaporated milk like Granny used)
1 tablespoon of vanilla
- Gather the cleanest snow you can. (Watch out for the yellow snow!) It’s usually best to get it right after a heavy snowfall.
- Stir in sugar, vanilla, and just enough milk until it’s the right consistency. Add a little at a time so you don’t end up with snow soup.
Serve in small bowls immediately. Mmm…
