We were so excited and surprised to get a White Christmas a couple of weeks ago! It got me to talking about the few times in my life when we actually got enough snow for my dad to make snow cream. I was asking my husband if I should try to make some, and I soon found out he had no idea what I was talking about!
When I emphatically said, "You've never had snow cream!" he said, "I'm from Mobile. It doesn't snow in Mobile." (Oh yeah! Duh!) Then remembering that my husband lived in Colorado for a little while, I ask him, "Well, don't they have it in Colorado?"
He just kinda looked at me. I guess that was a dumb question. So either they don't make snow cream in Colorado, or 20-something and 30-something year old men don't make snow cream! What do you think?
Either way, my dad always made great snow cream! It tasted just like homemade ice cream. The stuff I made didn't taste quite as great as his. (Alas!) But it was still pretty good. Today I'm sharing the recipe I used.
So do you guys make snow cream where you live?
Recipe for Snow Cream:
1 gallon snow
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk
Take a bowl and collect some clean snow. Add sugar and vanilla, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. Serve at once.
