Snow Ice Cream and Maple Syrup Snow Candy

Have You Ever Made a Dish With Snow?

It's snow watch 2011 here in San Francisco, and while it may be barely enough to count, it's still pretty exciting for us Bay Area residents. I've always been fascinated by snow-based dishes like snow ice cream and maple syrup snow candy, but I've never made them. For those of you who live in chilly climates, have you ever made something tasty with snow? What was it? And if you are lucky enough to have loads of powdery white fluff, I found a a recipe for snow-made maple syrup taffy on The Kitchn!

Yes! Being a New-Englander, we always find a chance to make sugar on snow, which is what I believe is in the picture above! You heat maple syrup until it boils, then pour it on top of snow (yes, clean, fresh snow for the snow police) and it becomes a delicious chewy candy.

I never have. Just hasn't ever appealed to me. Plus we get snow so infrequently (and what we do get I would NOT eat! lol)

I live in Texas so snow is rare, but not un-heard of. I remember the few times it snowed in my childhood, my Mom made us snow ice cream. When it would start snowing, she would go put a big bowl outside to catch our snow, so we wouldn't have any dirty snow.

I don't think I could eat anything with snow in it. It just seems gross, like using rainwater. But we do use snow for our oysters. Fill a shallow bowl up with snow and put shucked oysters on top. They stay nice and cold. =)
