I don't know how you feel about snow, but I love the stuff. It's pretty when it falls and it's pretty when it covers everything. As if those weren't reasons enough to love snow, I discovered a new use for it last year. Snow icecream!
I love eating something that came from outside. The same snow that I see through my window in the morning could easily become a bowl of icecream by the afternoon.
It's a wonderful feeling to gather snow right before you make something with it. The same feeling occurs when you pick something from a garden you've been tending to, I suppose. But snow just shows up. I don't have to water, fertilize or watch the snow sprout. I can just enjoy it.
I think you will like snow icecream. It's snow easy to make! Ha-ha. I made a funny.
- 1 quart (4 cups) heavy whipping cream
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups sugar
- 6 quarts (24 cups) fresh snow
- Mix the cream, vanilla and sugar together in a large bowl.
- Hurry outside and gather the snow.
- Come back inside. Before it melts, stir in the snow until it the ice cream becomes thick.
- Store any leftover ice cream in the freezer.
