You might be wondering whether snow is even safe to eat these days, due to increasing amounts of pollution & global warming, etc.
Snow is primarily water. According to researchers, it acts like an atmospheric scrubbing brush, grabbing particles and removing pollution from the air. It is for this reason that you should NOT consume snow that has been resting on the ground for long periods.The longer the snow falls, the lower the pollution levels in the air, and thus in the snow.
~John Pomeroy, Researcher from the University of Saskatchewan
When Not to Eat the Snow
Here are some definite “DO NOT EAT” the snow scenarios:
1 If the snow is not freshly fallen, do not eat it. The longer it sets, the more contaminants it will contain.
2 Urban areas where surface contaminants are high.
3 If you live near a factory (pollutants are released daily, the risk of contamination is too high.
4 It’s yellow, (or any other color besides white)
5 If there’s not already a significant snow-cover on the ground and it’s windy when it snows, avoid eating it, as it may contain a LOT of sand.
If you plan on making snow cream, set a clean baking sheet out on your back patio, or deck and let it accumulate on the clean surface.
