Farmer's Daughter

Although 20+ years removed from the farm, farmer's daughter is still a title I enjoy.
Growing up on a farm taught me many invaluable lessons, two of those being frugality and creativity.
Now as a wife and a mom, I love to put into practice what I learned growing up as a
Farmer's Daughter.

Snow Ice Cream

Well the forecasters predicted this one correctly and we have snow. Joel is home from school and not too happy that I told him today would be a good day to clean his room.

Maybe some snow ice cream will help.

Quick and Easy Version:

1 cup milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
Clean snow

In a large bowl mix milk, vanilla, and sugar together until sugar is dissolved. Slowly add snow until desired consistency.

Serve immediately. Does not keep well.

Slower But More Creamy version:

1 beaten egg
1 cup millk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
clean snow

In a saucepan mix the beaten egg, milk, sugar and vanilla vigorously with a wire whisk while heating until hot and frothy. Remove from heat. Allow pan to cool and then refrigerate until well chilled. This process will take 45-50 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl gather approximately 8 cups of clean snow. Pour cooled milk mixture over the snow mixing well and adding more snow until desired consistency is achieved.

Serve immediately.

Paula Deen version:

8 cups of clean snow
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla

In a large bowl place 8 cups of clean snow. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the top and add vanilla. Stir well to combine. Serve immediately.
