In almost all of Lower Saxony, a white blanket of snow covers town and country, inviting you to go sledding and build a snowman. But did you already know that you can conjure up ice cream with the help of the snow, and the kids have a lot of fun doing it? PS: Also suitable for adults!
You only need four ingredients for the delicious ice cream:
- 2 Plastic bag
- 500 ml Whipped cream
- salt to sprinkle it on the snow
- and of course – snow
Step by step to ice cream
- First, find two plastic bags of different sizes. The smaller bag should fit into the larger one without any problems.
- Now put the whipped cream in the smaller bag. If you like, you can refine these with vanilla sugar. Then close the bag properly!
- Now the giant bag needs to be filled with snow. It doesn’t matter whether you use fresh snow or other, because the snow doesn’t get into the cream in the end but only helps us prepare them.
- When you have filled the bag with the snow, salt the white mass. Salt the snow? It sounds strange, but it’s essential! The salt helps the snow melt faster, turning our whipped cream into a cream.
- Stowed away now the smaller whipped cream bag in the snow bagans then seals the giant snow bag. You should now receive a plastic package filled with snow and containing a load of cream.
- Now send the children outside to get the bag 15-20 minutes to throw. This is fun and helps ensure that the cream is also shaken thoroughly and mixes with the air in the bag and the vanilla sugar.
- After playing with the snow pack, the whipped cream should have turned into a cream with the consistency of soft ice cream.
- You can now serve the cream and take it with you Maple syrup, honey, or refine other means at will. Bon Appetit!
Use bags with zip closures so that your package does not break if you throw it. It is also good to use two bags instead of one so that neither snow nor cream leaks out. The more salt you put in the snow, the lower the melting temperature of the snow. That means: the snow melts faster! With this tip, you can explain to your children at the same time why the winter road service sometimes puts salt on the streets after it has snowed.
Even at the lowest sub-zero temperatures, there is water in the snow. The salt crystals bind with the water molecules in the snow to no longer change their physical state. The salt, ice, and snow cannot freeze again, and the road remains clear. This is a great way to combine knowledge of chemistry with the preparation of ice cream!
