Snow Ice Cream
This seems like a really appropriate recipe to post right now due to the heavy amounts of snow around the U.S. The only drawback is that if you don’t have the ingredients on hand you probably won’t want to go out for them! :-)
What you will need:
Fresh, clean snow
A level surface for working outside
1/2 C. half/half or whole milk
1/4 C. sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
4 C. clean snow
Here is the instructions as given on YouTube by Tawra Kellam of Living On A Dime.
Note: I took these photos of snow when we were living in Tennessee. The car was “decorated” by my brother, Dan. :-)
Note: One friend pointed out that our air is not necessarily clean (at least in most areas). So, wait till you've had several inches of snow before you collect and then try setting out a bowl as Tawra did and catching only the fresh stuff. Or, you could carefully scrape off just the very top of the snow. If your area has had a lot of snow recently you're probably safe anyway on the air pollutions. As Tawra mentioned, don't collect snow where chemicals have been used - such as yard and garden sprays, etc
