Snow Corn Bread

Snow! Real snow! For bread! Can you believe it?

I’ll bet my Grandma never baked bread like this.

According to Ted and Jean Kaufman,

New snow contains ammonia which causes the batter to rise quickly and acts the same as baking powder. Make certain to gather only fresh, clean fallen snow. An unusual bread, and fun to try–at least once!

What you need:

  • 2 cups yellow corn meal
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups dry, clean, freshly fallen snow
  • butter

What you do:

1. Mix corn meal with salt, pepper and snow in a chilled bowl. Work fast, blending the ingredients quickly with a wooden spoon.

2. Fill a buttered and lightly floured shallow baking dish about ¾ full. Bake in a hot oven (400 °F / 204 °C) until the top is crisp and golden brown.

Nice, but I’m still waiting for snow……
