Oh the weather outside is frightful

but the snow is so delightful…yes i know that’s not the words. I love the snow! And we’ve had lots of snow today. None  of the cars in our street have moved, and finally we’ve had enough of the white stuff for me to be able to make snow ice cream!

This is something i discovered a couple of years ago, and thought that living in Scotland, there’d be enough snow at least once a year to make it. The last couple of winters we’ve had almost no snow at all, Which i’ve found terribly disappointing – no snow = no snow ice cream.

So imagine my delight at nearly a foot of snow this morning! I quickly put a clean bowl outside to catch some snow in and set about getting excited.

The recipe is simple – a can of condensed milk, 8 cups of fresh clean snow and a bit of flavouring. The recipes all suggest vanilla, but i used some strawberry brandy we made in the summer. You just mix the lot together and serve. It worked really well. The result is a creamy soft dessert, which doesn’t last long!
