This spring has been crazy here in Central Virginia. Our poor maple tree has had buds on it for 3 weeks now, and the snow just keeps coming. White snow on red buds. I prefer the normal temps, please, the 50s and sunny with only the occasional snow.
But this week, on Monday, we wound up with yet another snowstorm. (another one is scheduled for a week from now.) And I decided to make a fast simple dessert.
SNOW ICE CREAM!
Scoop clean snow into a bowl. Drizzle with a measured amount of maple syrup (preferably Vermont maple syrup.) Too much will be too sweet, which, if you are my kids, you will tell me is impossible. If you heat it, you will melt the snow – so don’t heat it up.
Eat with a spoon.
Might be enough to make even me like spring snowstorms.
