Ok so one of my friends actually asked on FB the other day how to make snowcream. We live in the south and see big snowfall maybe once a year. So far this winter season we've seen it twice. Anyways, another girl we went to hs with actually gave her a recipe and she made it and ate it, served it to her family. Am I the only one that sees how dangerous this is? Snow if frozen moisture from the air. The AIR that is full of pollutants that travelled all the way down to the ground. The ground is dirty too for obvious reasons. And then there's acid rain, which is going to be frozen acid rain for snow.

  • Snow is actually very very pure that is why in a survival situation it is a good source of water once you melt it because eating as is will cause hypothermia

  • Snow Ice Cream

    Large mixing bowl of fresh snow

    1-2 c. Milk (any type is fine, but whole milk is best)

    1-2 tsp. Vanilla Extract or other flavoring

    1/2 - 1 c. Sugar

    Take your large bowl of snow and stir the snow around a bit to fluff it up. Now quickly stir in just enough milk to make the right consistency of ice cream. Start with about 1/2 cup and keep going until you have enough to make the snow creamy. If you add too much milk and it becomes runny, just add some more snow. Then stir in a little vanilla and sugar, and Viola, you've got yourself some homemade snow ice cream! You can also add some other flavoring such as chocolate or strawberry syrup if desired, but I recommend having it plain at least the first time, it just tastes more snowy that way. The snow ice cream can be put in the freezer and saved for later, but it's best served immediately.

  • As for the dirt on the ground - you don't shovel it up, you scoop just the top layer where you know no animals have been, or if you know you're getting a good amount of snow you set out a bowl or something clean like that to catch it.
