What do you do when your kids eat snow? Do you tell them not to do it, because let's face it, who really knows (or wants to know) what the heck is in that snow pile? Gah. Or do you encourage them, and maybe even join in?
If you are a mom in the latter group, then you might want to add making Snow Cream to your winter recipe stockpile.
According to one mom, snow cream is made by mixing clean snow with evaporated milk, vanilla, and sugar together.
Last year we posted this similar snow cream recipe, which called for the same ingredients as well as an egg:
Heat 1 cup cream (you could probably use milk, but what's the fun in that?) on med-low heat until little bubbles appear around the edge. Meanwhile beat 1 egg with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Beat a couple of spoonfuls of hot milk into the egg mixture, then dump it all into the pan, heating and stirring for about a minute until the egg has sufficiently cooked. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Put the custard outside to cool. Scoop clean, fresh, fluffy snow into a bowl. Pour custard over the snow and stir.
Have you ever made or eaten snow cream? Where do you stand on the eating snow issue?
