It wasn’t until I transferred to JMU, and the snowy season arrived, that I discovered that snow cream was known by very few. And by few, I mean those that live anywhere south of Harrisonburg (which isn’t many!). Ask anyone north of Harrisonburg and you get puzzled looks, or at least that’s my experience.
I can’t image a winter without snow cream, and it’s mostly because it is such a simple recipe. It’s made with milk, sugar, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and SNOW of course! As far as measurements, I just add by taste. Make use of the snow that we’ve had lately and throw a batch together. It may only be known by a handful of students, but those who try it are sure to love it!
MILK + SUGAR + VANILLA EXTRACT + NUTMEG + SNOW
Now there are many variations of snow cream, as you can see on Pinterest, and I’ve also discovered that Starbucks has their own too (i.e. a spin on the classic Vanilla Bean). But what is the fun if it’s as easy as pulling into a drive thru? Get your friends together and pass this recipe on!You are in the clear for this wintery season, but next year, just remember to avoid eating the first snow.
