Do NOT use Yellow Snow if you have pets

If left-overs are put in the freezer using wet snow can cause ice crystals to form giving your dessert an icy texture.

You can add a shot of rum, brandy or vodka to reduce the liquid from crystallizing.

We just had a blizzard come through with 50 mile an hour winds, causing 3-4 foot snow drifts. The snow was dry and excellent for making a new batch of snow ice cream. We decided to make a blackberry swirl  ice cream. By buying the blackberries it ended up costing us about $3 a gallon. Had we used our canned fruit we got from our trees last year it would have cost about $1.75 a gallon.

Snow ice cream has been around for centuries. The ingredients used by many countries are different, but the principles are the same.

The basic ingredients to making a gallon is:
2 eggs if desired
1 cup of sugar
1-3 tbls vanilla extract (many people choose almond extract over vanilla)
Your choice of milk, cream or sweetened condensed milk depending on your taste
Plenty of fresh dry snow

Optional ingredients:
chopped nuts
chocolate chips
Chocolate syrup
crushed peppermints
