    Not to be the bearer of bad news, but do you realize that snow is the atmosphere's filter. It cleans out a lot of polution in the air. That is why they tell children not to eat snow. Sorry, please don't hate the messenger. [​IMG]

    Now, some people think this is unsanitary but if you're adventuresome, give it a try. It's a winter treat that doesn't happen often and tastes better than ice cream.

    Here's what I read when I googled it...

    Note: ALWAYS - ALWAYS make sure the snow is clean. It takes at least one to two hours for snow to clean the pollutants from the air, then use only snow that has fallen after that first cleansing snow. It also goes without saying (but I will anyway), to make sure you do not collect the snow where animals and birds eat (or do other things). Cleanliness first. Stress that with the kids, because this is a treat even the younger ones can make for the whole family.

    Well if snow is the earth's air filter, I must be an algae eater because my Mama always made us snow ice cream.

    Jen4...looks yummy! Where I live in California we only get snow once every 10 years or so - and that pretty much melts as soon as it hits the ground. So I will have to use my handy-dandy snow cone maker to generate my own snow - thanks for the recipe, can't wait to try it. [​IMG]

    I love it and it is probably cleaner than a lot of food we buy if we only knew. . .
    I hate snow, but if we get much, I try to 'eat my way out'. [​IMG]
