Happy Tasty Tuesday! We finally had snow this past winter. Little bits here and there, but the storm a few weeks ago brought just enough to whip up a small batch of Snow Ice Cream. Usually, hubby uses the snow as the ice around the ice cream maker bucket to keep the ingredients cold, but I decided to give this a try, since I’ve seen so many people posting about it on Facebook, and we really didn’t have enough snow to use as the insulator for the ice cream bucket. And I just happened to find a recipe in one of my Amish cookbooks, “Sharing Our Best – A Collection of Recipes from Ridgeview Mennonite Church”, for it. It’s really easy to mix up and takes items you probably already have on hand except the snow of course. Ha!
If you are still experiencing winter weather, here’s the recipe to try…
Snow Ice Cream, Travis Horst, page 92, “Sharing Our Best – A Collection of Recipes from Ridgeview Mennonite Church”
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Beat together all ingredients except snow. Add fresh snow until thick. Freeze until firm. Eat and enjoy.
Depending on how much snow you use depends on the amount of ice cream you’ll get. We enjoyed eating this for dessert one evening. It would be something fun to do with children too. Easy for them to help make it as well. Sorry for the lack of pictures. I snapped one after I had made it, but completely forgot to get one while we enjoyed it.
I hope our winter weather is all done for the season. I have crocuses blooming in the yard and other bulbs pushing through the dirt. I am so ready for spring.
