When Life Hands You. . .Snow,

When life hands you lemons, they say to make lemonade. It only follows that when life hands you snow, you ought to make. . . ice cream! Here's a recipe for snow ice cream. Just be sure you take freshly fallen snow and be sure to stay away from the yellow stuff.

2 eggs
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. milk or light cream
2 tsps. vanilla
pinch of salt
Place ingredients in a large bowl. Mix with an egg beater to make an uncooked custard. Now, scoop up a pan of new fallen snow and mix the snow into the custard. You need to eath this right away! This will make about 1 quart of snow ice cream.

Remember, fresh fallen snow only. And be sure to wash the eggs before cracking them. If you are concerned about raw eggs, make a cooked custard recipe but don't let the custard set up before you add the snow.
We're about to get our fourth big snowfall in about three weeks--unless Mother Nature has some mercy. Maybe it's time to make some ice cream.
