Our very first March here was very snowy - the last big snowstorm of the year came through overnight before St Patrick's Day. So we weren't surprised that it snowed overnight - although the amount was at the top-end of what we'd expected.
We watched as the school called for a two-hour delay and then, eventually a full snow-day. The snow continued to fall.
And so it was that at lunchtime, we decided to do an experiment we've been meaning to try for a few years - snow ice cream.
So, we got bowls of clean fresh snow, added maple syrup (2 tbs), vanilla extract (few drops) and cream (1/3 cup / 80 ml) (we used coconut cream to make it dairy-free), stirred it up, ...
...instant ice cream. It was good!
