    Recipes with Snow

    If you  have fresh snow there are two things that we make to eat. Sugar on Snow and Snow Cream. Both are easy to make.

    Snow cream--you need 4 cups of fresh , clean snow. 1/2 cup of milk, teaspoon of vanilla, sugar to taste. mix until it looks like soft ice cream and eat. I made this with eggnog. You could add other flavors.

    Sugar on snow, heat maple syrup, pour over the fresh snow. ths syrup hardens up like sticy candy.  I have never tried this with "fake" maple syurp but think that it should work.

    Sugar on snow is a staple at spring dinners in New England.  The kids love it.

    When the snow is fresh, it becomes our dog's water supply. She won't drink the water in her bowl. Jill

     Snow cream can also be made with evap if youcan't get to the store and don't want to use up the milk from the fridge.

    Momma loves this because when she was a child it was the only way she got ice cream (great skill set since it was before REA came to her county)

    My DH loves sugar on snow. It is one of the things he misses from living on the east coast  and Canada.

    Didn't Laura Ingalls Wilder write about doing this in "Little House In The Big Woods"? Sounds like fun.

    Having grownup in southern Arkansas which seldom had more than light flurries, this was a great treat. AM

    I guess there has to be an upside to having some miserable weather.
