Hi again! Today’s topic is ice cream made with freshly fallen snow. I was introduced to this sweet treat by my husband’s family. It is a fun, simple and tasty dessert to make as a family. Back East, we usually only got to make Snow Cream once a year, but out here in the mountains, we’ve already had several opportunities to make it! Vanilla is the traditional flavoring, but just about any flavoring extract works well. On my last batch, I used orange extract, and it was delicious.
Here’s What You Will Need:
- About 1 gallon fresh, clean snow (if the snow is deep enough, you can scoop some up in your mixing bowl, or if you know snow is coming, you can put your bowl outside to catch the snow)
- 10 oz (2 small cans) evaporated milk (NOT sweetened condensed)
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 2-3 teaspoons of flavoring extract – vanilla, orange, root beer, strawberry, etc.
Here’s What You Do:
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk evaporated milk, sugar and flavoring.
- Gently pour milk mixture over over snow, and stir quickly to combine.
Here’s How You Use It:
- Serve immediately for best flavor and texture.
- If you have leftovers, you can freeze the Snow Cream in an airtight container for about a week.
Peace Be With You
