During a holiday visit to my brother and sister-in-law’s warm and cozy home near Truckee, California we watched the snow fall outside and decided to make snow ice cream.
My sister-in-law Trudy, grew up in Alaska where she learned to make this winter time treat.
First we “harvested” some fresh and fluffy snow. She reminded me to avoid snow under a tree because pine needles tend to make the ice cream crunchy.
Next we brought the beautiful bowl of snow in the house and added cream, sugar, and vanilla.
She added the ingredients and mixed with a spoon. Then she tested it to determine if it was the right taste and consistency. If it is too sweet a person can always gather more snow.
It was simply delish! Thanks Trudy!
Have you ever made ice cream out of snow? Hmm… for those that are on a dairy-free diet, I wonder if it would work to make sorbet?
