How About Making Some Snow Ice Cream!

Hello everybody and happy Monday.....

In Oklahoma, making snow ice cream when we get a big snowfall is a tradition, as I’m sure it is in a lot of places. With the rough winter we have had here so far, this is a good time for the snow ice cream recipe – it may come in handy when the next blast hits us.
For those of you languishing on the beaches of Florida and Southern California, too bad for you.  This is one of the few perks of living in a place that gets wintery weather every year. 

Snow Ice Cream:

1 c. half and half
1 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. corn starch
1 egg
Pinch of salt
1 Tbsp. vanilla
Clean, fresh snow

Combine all of the ingredients except the snow in a medium saucepan.

Cook over medium heat until the mixture becomes thick.

Remove from heat and cool thoroughly.

Add enough snow to achieve the consistency that you want, mix well and eat quickly.

Snow ice cream actually tastes pretty good, and if there are kids in your household, they will absolutely love it.  Making snow ice cream is something everyone should do at least once in his/her life. It should be on everyone's bucket list.
