When my parents moved our family to Placerville, California we found ourselves in snow country. A memory came to me today probably because we have so much snow.
We were so excited about seeing snow fall. And in the mountains it did not just snow a little. We lived at a place called 8 mile, and the snow got really deep. Mama loved the snow, she would set and watch the big flakes come down for hours. I came home from school to find Mama out in the snow with a big bowl. She was filling it with snow. I had no idea what she was doing this for, and Mama was being very silent about her plan. I did not know about Snow Ice Cream but soon would be having it for the first time. It was very good and along with my sister and brother we ate most of it.
Here is how she made it: 1 cup Milk or cream
1/2 cup of sugar
!/2 teaspoon of Vanilla mixed into about 3 quarts of snow.
Caution: watch out for yellow snow!!!
