Snow Ice Cream I

Snow Ice Cream I


"My dad always said we had to wait until there was at least 2 and 1/2 feet of snow already on the ground with more coming steadily because then we knew the snow was clean. I can count on one hand the number of times the snow was clean enough to make snow ice cream. It's almost worth moving to a part of the country that gets more snow because boy is it good stuff! This recipe contains raw eggs. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly and the infirm do not consume raw eggs."

There certainly has been enough snow on the east coast for this. Here is an idea for the eggs: buy pasteurized egg product in a carton in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. They're ...

I love snow ice cream. I don't measure out my vanilla..I just pour a little in there. This is how I traditionally make it, but there is another recipe for snow ice cream on this site that does n...

Great recipe! If you don't have evaporated milk, you can substitute Eagle Brand, heavy cream, or a mixture of the two for the evaporated milk. The snow waters down the taste, so the richer you...

I have been looking for someone else who makes this recipe for years. I think my friends thought I was making this up! Nice to see it listed, and also nice to see it stipulated that it is NO...

Pretty good! Before I added the milk mixture to the snow, I divided it in half and stirred about 1/2 c. melted chocolate chips to half the mixture. I used each mixture on half the snow, creati...

Great recipe! Even better than the snow ice cream from my youth! If you're concerened about salmonella (an issue for those with weak immune systems or the elderly or very young) then use an egg ...

I used to love snow cream, however living in areas with acid rain and a lot of pollution... probably wouldn't recommend it.
