I saw this recipe on Annalea Hart the other day on how to make Snow Ice Cream. Who ever heard of such a thing? This is going to be my new "Snow Day" tradition!
Here's a little sneak peek of the conversation that I had with Clark earlier:
Me: Clark, we are going to make snow ice cream. How does that sound?
Clark: Hmmm. That sounds good.
Me: Where do you think we could find some snow?
Clark: Um, maybe outside.
Me: Do you see any snow out there? (we are supposed to be getting 2 feet)
Clark: I see a little bit out there.
Me: Just a little bit? Do you think it is enough for ice cream?
Clark: Yep. Let me get my boots on.
A little bit of snow? Sheesh...
Send your little helper out into the snow so you don't have to get cold!
Mix up the following:
~1/2 gallon of snow
~1/2 cup sugar
~1/2 tsp. vanilla
~1 1/4 cups milk
Mix until creamy.
Next time we might try cream instead of milk. It seemed a bit watery. And we'll definitely freeze it before we enjoy. I think we were just too excited to try it out this time! Any other suggestions?
Clark loved his. He said it was the best snow cream he's ever had.
I decided to let Kent in on the fun and give him some plain snow. He thought it was cruel and unusual punishment until it melted. Then he wanted more!
