Snow and Snow Ice Cream

I was snowed in today and didn’t have to go to work!

Here’s a couple pictures taken in my garden:



And here’s two taken on my street:



But the best thing about snow days (other than not having to work!) is making real snow ice cream.

Snow Ice Cream

2 eggs, well beaten

1 cup milk

1 cup cream

1 cup sugar (or 3/4 cup honey)

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

bucket of fresh, clean snow

In a 2 quart bowl, mix beaten eggs, milk and cream. Blend in sugar, mixing well. Add vanilla and salt. Put into a gallon container and gradually add snow, mixing well, until of desired consistency. Serve immediately (melts fast!) or freeze. Makes about a gallon.

  1. Well, I made a snow cone, with snow and strawberry syrup, like for an italian soda. I would like to try your recipe, but what should you do if you don’t have cream? And, also, is the raw egg really safe?

  2. Well, I’ve grown up eating raw eggs, and never had a problem. I think the only problem could be if you don’t wash the egg before cracking it, and it *happened* to have salmonella on its shell, which then got into the egg itself. I personally think it’s all a big scare – even salmonella isn’t really any sort of danger to the average person – it only makes you sick if you’re already immune-depressed.

    Check out this article to see how low the risks actually are:

    Can’t help you on the no cream issue – you could make it with just milk, I suppose, but it couldn’t be as good!
