Eat the Snowstorm

As we deal with the cleanup process following this weekend’s overwhelming snowfall, many of us are perplexed as to where all these heaping mountains of snow will go. Two of the frequent visitors to my bird feeders, a Cardinal and a Mourning Dove, gave me a hint from nature. Snow is a great source of water. So how about eating or drinking it!

Our friends at Grub Street seem to have picked up on this. They have recipes for snow ice cream, snow candy, snow taffy, Maple Syrup “leather aprons,” snow pancakes, and blender drinks. Click on either image to go to their blog page and get these recipes.
