Via the wonderful Cleaner Plate Club:
Here’s what there is left to do: walk outside with a big Pyrex mixing bowl. Better yet, send your children outside with a big Pyrex mixing bowl. Tell them to go to the cleanest part of the yard — a place where no dog has walked, where no boot has stepped, where no tree has dropped branches — and scoop up snow. The top layer of snow is ideal, and if it has been sleety, so the top layer is a little bit icy, all the better.
Scoop snow into individual bowls. Drizzle with maple syrup.
You have just made maple syrup snowcones, which I assure you are the finest dessert you will find mid-winter in New England.
And it’s vegan!
