Cinnamon Spiced Apple Snow Cone


Our float cabin after a fall snowstorm.
I grew up in a big city way down in Southern California. The only snow we saw was up on the mountain tops. That makes it a special treat for me.

Where we now live in a float cabin on Powell Lake in British Columbia, there's just enough snow to make it fun, not drudgery.

This week we got several inches so soft and fluffy I called it cotton candy snow.

I went out with a spoon and gathered a cup full to make a big snow cone. I didn't have any syrup, but I did have an open jar of the cinnamon spiced apples I canned earlier in the fall.

Canned spiced apple syrup makes a yummy snow cone.

I drizzled my homemade syprup over the top and stirred it in. The result was a sweet, cold treat to celebrate this special occasion. Unfortunately, rain came and all my luscious cotton candy snow was washed away. But I'll be ready with this new jar of apples when it happens. -- Margy

    1. Sometimes our woodstove can make it too warm, then we just open a sliding glass door open for a few minutes to regulate the temperature. - Margy

  2. That's just about enough snowfall to enjoy as you say and not enough to cause mayhem!
    What a very delicious sounding snow cone treat!
    Merry Christmas!

  3. What fun - glad you got to enjoy some snow. We have over 3 inches - and if it doesn't warm up it looks to be here for a while - at least our roads are clear.
