Snow Ice Cream

A dry snow....not the right stuff for snow balls, snowmen, and igloos;
but perfect for snow ice cream!

Start with one farm fresh egg in a mixing bowl.
Stir in 1/2 cup sugar.

Add 1/2 cup evaporated milk

and 1 teaspoon of vanilla

Whisk well.

Gather a nice large bowl of very clean snow.

Add snow to the custard mixture and stir in until the consistency you desire.

Sorry, we didn't get any pictures of the finished product...we were too busy lapping it up!
This was some left from the little farm-girl. She had already eaten a bunch. (We made a double batch)

*******No young children or elderly persons were poisoned with salmonella in the making of this treat******* If you are concerned about it, you could maybe cook the custard mixture first and chill, or use egg substitute? Haven't ever tried doing that, so am not sure if it would work or not.

Aw, how fun! We used to make this all the time when I was little! I've never seen the recipe for it though, so thanks! Not that I'll be able to make it anytime soon (fingers crossed). We've had springy weather for 3 weeks straight now!

A timely recipe! Since we have another 6-8" of new snow today and it's still falling, I think we should try this! After we snowblow the drive, again!

Our recipe doesn't have the egg, but the kids sure love it! Didn't even have enough snow to make it this year though. :(
