Snow Ice cream

This spring has been crazy here in Central Virginia. Our poor maple tree has had buds on it for 3 weeks now, and the snow just keeps coming. White snow on red buds.  I prefer the normal temps, please, the 50s and sunny with only the occasional snow.

But this week, on Monday, we wound up with yet another snowstorm. (another one is scheduled for a week from now.) And I decided to make a fast simple dessert.

SNOW ICE CREAM!

Ingredients:

Clean snow

Maple syrup

 

Technique:

Scoop clean snow into a bowl. Drizzle with a measured amount of maple syrup (preferably Vermont maple syrup.) Too much will be too sweet, which, if you are my kids, you will tell me is impossible. If you heat it, you will melt the snow – so don’t heat it up.

 

Eat with a spoon.

 

Might be enough to make even me like spring snowstorms.

    Never tried it this way. My mother had a more complicated recipe. But she would never let us eat the first snow. She said it was radio-active. She believed that the first snow of the season somehow cleared the air of any radioactivity…!

    Oh boy. Now I wonder if I should have let my kids eat this . . . though it was most decidedly NOT the first snow of the season!!!!
