Snowpocalypse! A Basic Snow Ice Cream Recipe

Well, Snowmaggedon, or Snowpocalypse,  showed up in Kansas City and I have nearly 2 feet of snow on my back deck. Businesses and schools were closed, including my office, so I spent the day crafting my little hands off.  Recently, I had a friend make homemade ice cream for me, and it was fantastic.  When the snow came, a friend was on Facebook looking for ice cream recipes made with snow. Honestly, I had never heard of this, so I went looking online for recipes.  I found a great basic recipe that is easily modified by adding any flavors you want such as chocolate or fresh fruit. 


 Basic Snow Ice Cream Recipe
1 large metal pan
2 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can Eagle Brand milk
2 eggs (you may omit these if you are skittish about using raw eggs)

Before mixing ingredients, place glass bowls to serve the ice cream in the refrigerator to chill them.

In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients except snow. Send the heartiest of the crew out into the snow with a large metal pan such as a roaster or a big soup pot or two. If you have the foresight, set the metal pans outside a couple of hours before you plan to make the snow cream. If the pans are frozen, obviously the snow will stay frozen longer.

Fold in a generous amount of snow with the mixture of sugar, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Do not stir too rapidly or too vigorously. As you fold the snow in (it may take a gallon or two), stir gently until all ingredients are well mixed. Pour immediately into chilled bowls.

To add chocolate flavor, use chocolate syrup, or use cocoa powder.  Fresh fruit can be pureed in a blender and added to the mix.  Be as creative as you like!
