Snow Cream

  Though not commonly eaten in large cities, snow in rural areas can be very clean and fresh tasting.  Given that we have gotten so much snow in our area lately, I thought it only fitting to include this recipe.  One taste of this frosty treat instantly takes me back to my childhood.  There is an old wives’ tale about how you are not supposed to eat the first snowfall of the season.  Most likely you would be perfectly fine but I usually follow this “rule” anyway.

The fresher the snow you use, the smoother the texture.

• 1 cup heavy cream 

• ½-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or Kahlúa 

• ½ cup sugar 

• 1 large bowl of fresh, CLEAN snow 

Whisk together the first three ingredients in a bowl.  Add the snow to the mixture in doses and stir until smooth and creamy. 

Can be topped with chocolate syrup and/or maraschino cherries if desired.
