Ah, but there is good. With the arrival of snow, there is opportunity for snow cream.
Although I missed the opportunity to try this recipe last year, I made sure this year I was prepared. So without further ado, here is how you make snow cream.
Step One: After an hour after the snow has started to fall, put out a big kitchen bowl to collect the snow.
Step Two: Gather all your ingredients: 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Step Three: Place the milk, sugar, and vanilla in a blender.
Step Four: Add the snow to the blender. Mix well.
Hmm... It's not mixing...
Step Five: Unplug the blender and stir the mixture by hand.
Step Six: Scoop mixture in a glass. Garnish as desired.
And now for the taste test...
It's a winner! Next time you find yourself cursing the snow, try this recipe instead. It may sweeten the experience for you.
