Snow Cream in S.C. !!!

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices - C. Dan Joyner 21498

Snow cream is another tradition in the south, although I am not sure it is peculiar to the south. My guess is that folks who live in areas where heavy and frequent snowfall occur do NOT do snow cream, but this is only a hunch. Making Snow Cream

Snow cream is what we make with clean fallen snow around these parts. We take a large bowl outside and find a snow source that we can skim the top layers of snow off of without touching what the snow is on (car, table, etc.) We collect a bowlful, then head inside and add milk, sugar and vanilla, mixing to form snow cream. Another way to collect the snow is to put your bowl outside and let it snow into it, but we have found that it rarely snows enough here for that to be practical.

Snow Cream w/ Chocolate ChipsThis is a basic recipe which can be expanded with fruit or cocoa or any number of ingredients, but we usually just stick with the basic recipe – simple and delicious. A nice perk we enjoy here in Upstate South Carolina is clean air (relatively speaking)…we are not concerned with eating dirty snow because we don’t get dirty snow – a real treat.

Well, that’s about all there is to snow cream…simple, clean and natural (organic in our case). I wouldn’t recommend it in areas where smog and pollution are factors, but if you ever get to S.C., we’ll have some of the real deal.

That sounds like a treat! Never heard of it. But I don't think I would want to eat something cold in the cold weather

Hi Michael...that's a good point. I guess we so rarely get a decent snow and the opportunity to make snow cream, we overlook the cold weather!

Ya still eat ice cream in the winter don't you.  That's all snow cream really is.  Mama used to make it as a treat out in northwest Nebraska when I was a kid cause we couldn't afford ice cream.  Great stuff.
