Well, they say if life gives you lemons you make lemonade. And I say when you get over 8 inches of snow in the short span of 5 hours, you make snow cream! And that is just what I did today. And it brought so many memories back from my childhood. I can remember it so well.
My friends and I would be outside playing in the snow and my Mom would call us to the backdoor. She would be holding a big metal bucket and a huge spoon and she would tell us to fill up the bucket with fresh fallen snow. We would run back out and get the snow and bring it back to her with great anticipation, knowing what was next.
We would gather in the kitchen where she would give us some warm socks. The oven door would be open and a big towel laying on the door for us to rest our cold feet on. We each grab a seat and sit there eating our snow cream! Oh My Goodness. It was the best vanilla ice cream and as much as we wanted!
8 cups of fresh fallen snow
1 (14 ounce) can Sweetened Condensed milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Topping of your choice (optional)
Measure out your snow into a big mixing bowl. Stir in can of sweetened
condensed milk and vanilla and stir with rubber spatula until blended.
