Frozen Milk, the Pickford Creamery and other Snowy Treats . . .

"A snowflake is one of God's most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!" ~Author Unknown

Cold, snowy winter mornings when I was real young meant one thing. By the time I was rousted out of bed the Pickford Creamery would have delivered the days milk. Out on the stoop. In glass bottles with cardboard lids. Unhomogenized. So it seperated and the cream rose to the top. In the cold the cream would freeze and push the little cardboard disc out of the bottle.

Instant ice cream cone!

You can't get the real deal anymore. But you can still make a snow day something special by making a batch of Snow Ice Cream.

All that's needed are a few simple ingredients and some freshly fallen, pristine snow. The kind you only find Up North. Where the air is still clean.

The recipe is pretty basic:
2-3 cups clean snow
2 TBs half-and-half
1 TB maple syrup
1 TB cocoa powder
1 dash pure vanilla

Add ingredients to medium-small bowl, smoosh with a spoon, serve and enjoy!
