With the massive snow dumps in the US here are a few ways to really enjoy that snow, by the fire.

HOMESTEADING BLOG TIP AND HOMEMADE ICE CREAM USING SNOW!

In a bowl mix a bit of vanilla, a few eggs, and enough sugar to taste. Make this like you would for any base then mix it in with enough snow to make it the consistency of ice cream, believe it or not.. it tastes just like you hand-churned it. It's wonderful stuff. Add a bit of lemon flavor for that added hand churned taste.

HOMESTEADING BLOG TIP AND HOMEMADE CANDY RECIPE USING SNOW!

Make a bit of Indian candy by rolling some of that honey you have sugared up in the cellar in some snow. It will get hard enough to suck and be as round as any hard candy.. yummmmmm.... This also works with Maple syrup, either way this is a wonderful regional treat.

HOMESTEADING BLOG TIP AND HOMEMADE SNOW CONE RECIPE

For the best of the snow cones.. pack a cup with snow and pour some juice over it.. it's the best low calorie snow cone you will ever love.

HOMESTEADING BLOG TIP AND CANDIED ORANGE PEEL RECIPE

Last but not least don't toss out those winter orange peels you got for the holidays. Slice them in strips, and coat them in sugar or honey. Bake or set them on a wood stove.. they become a crispy bitter sweet treat.
