I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Snow Ice Cream!
For most of my childhood I lived in places where once Winter made it's appearance, casting white snow all over everything, it hung around like an overextended house guest. It went on for months and months. I don't remember thinking much about it because I was used to it. And I was a kid. I had FUN in the snow!
Now I am older and I love my garden and growing things. I also live in a place where Winter means drab, cold, windy and wet, but not often does it include snow. After this drags on for a few months, it gets OLD in a hurry. I get Spring fever and I just can't wait to get outside and grow something!
I used this very simple recipe:
~ 1 cup of milk
~ 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
~ 1/2 cups sugar
~ CLEAN WHITE Snow
Bundle up or better yet, let the kids bundle up and go outside to collect 4 - 5 cups of fresh, clean snow (nothing yellow... or any other colors! :) Don't pack the snow, just scoop it up. Bring it in the house and set it in the freezer while you combine the other ingredients.
