We don't always get a big snow in Alabama, but when we do......we make snow cream!
People always say, "Make sure you gather clean snow!" ????? I never understood that. I always just put a clean bowl on the patio table and wait for Mother Nature to fill it for me. She outdid herself for me this time! This is an 8 quart bowl!
My general rule of thumb for snow cream is as follows for each gallon of snow (16 cups), add the following:
1 cup sugar
2 T. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup milk (more or less)
Simple mix together. You may want to add more or less milk to get the desired consistency you want. And I love vanilla, so I add a lot! Adjust to your taste.
