One of my favorite snow day childhood memories is the ice cream my grandmother made from snow. She never used the first snow of the season, believing it was full of impurities from the air. Here in Atlanta, I’m sure we restock our impurities daily. Still, this week’s was our second snow.
A friend posted to Facebook that she made snow ice cream, using Paula Deen’s recipe. It tastes like my grandmother’s. The kids loved it so much we made it twice on Wednesday.
You’ll need a can of sweetened condensed milk and a teaspoon of vanilla.
And snow: eight cups of it.
Pour the milk and vanilla on top and stir well. Throw out any chunks of ice.
