Snow Cream-Cream of Wheat

P1000398(1)I grew up in Maryland where we couldn’t wait for the first snowfall. My mother would send us out to scrape off the top layer of snow and put a few cups into a bowl. We would then add milk, sugar, vanilla to the snow and stir or put into a blender.

This is a recipe that comes closest to the flavor and texture except that it’s warm-perfect for winter. For a class of 15, I triple the recipe. I also have each child measure an ingredient and have a chance to stir. They can stir before you put it on the heat or if using an electric skillet, before you plug it in.

You will need:

2 cups milk (whole is preferred)

1/3 cup sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

2-3 teaspoons vanilla ( I love vanilla so I tend to add 3)

1/3 cup Farina (Cream of Wheat)

1 pat of butter (about 1/3 tablespoon)


Measure 1/3 cup Cream of Wheat and set aside.

Place milk into a saucepan. Add butter and salt. Add sugar and place on medium heat stirring constantly untilĀ  it just comes to a boil.

Gradually add Cream of Wheat and stir until thickened about 2 minutes.

Put into serving cups and allow to cool several minutes.
