Whoda thought this winter would be worse, in some ways, than last? We had about 6″ of snow and the thermometer plummeted to 9 below zero this morning. I had to cancel a Fox 19 TV demo I was scheduled for – Fat Tuesday food since I couldn’t make it out of my drive. But all is not lost – I remembered this recipe for snow cream and wanted to share it again: Here’s the entry I put in here last year about this time:
It was Matt Swaim on the Sonrise Morning show today who mentioned that he made snow cream with condensed milk, vanilla, lemon juice and, of course, snow. Well, nothing would do until I could make some myself. . Oh gosh, what memories it brought back. Now this isn’t a real creamy ice cream, but it is so good and the whole deal is that you are making memories especially with the little ones.
I made it by just putting snow in a bowl (clean snow) and then pouring a mixture of condensed milk and vanilla in it until it was the consistency I liked. The good thing about this is, you can always add more snow! Matt’s recipe was 8 cups packed snow to 1 can, 12-14 oz or so condensed milk, a teaspoon of vanilla and a bit of lemon juice.
You have to eat this right away, but that’s usually not a problem. Make some today!
