A big thank you to Jill at The Prairie Homestead for sharing this wonderful recipe (Snow Ice Cream). We finally had a chance to make it tonight and it was a huge hit.
The kids happily collected fresh snow that was coming down
We used the 8 cups the recipe called for. You can cut this in half as it was more than enough for a family of 4
Next we measured and mixed the remaining ingredients (1 cup of cream, 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 cup maple syrup). We added an extra 1/4 cup of syrup and it was just perfect for a nice after dinner dessert.(we used store bought as we are out of our homemade syrup)
We whisked it into the snow mixing a bit longer to make it creamy and smooth. YUM
Now we have 2 awesome recipes (Molasses on Snow Candy) that we can make on those snowy nights!
