Snow ice cream

I was told never use snow from the first snow fall.

Large bowl or big dishpan full of fresh, clean snow
1 can of Milnot (or evaporated) milk, or pint carton of half and half, or equivalent amount of heavy cream(about)
granulated sugar, about 1 cup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fill a large mixing bowl or dishpan with fresh, clean snow.  Add about 1 cup sugar.  With wooden spoon, fold snow together with sugar.  Add vanilla extract. Slowly stir in evaporated milk or half and half or heavy cream.  Add and stir milk or half and half or heavy cream until snow-sugar mixture takes on the consistency of custard ice cream or unripened homemade freezer ice cream.  (It may not require all of the can of milk or carton of half and half or heavy cream to reach this consistency.  This is a kind of fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants recipe and takes only minutes to make.) When snow ice cream reaches this stage, spoon into individual serving bowls and serve immediately.

I understand that some folks use a can of sweetened condensed milk to make their version of this recipe.
