What You Need To Make Snow Cones At Home
Is there anything better on a hot day than a delicious snow cone? With just a few ingredients and your freezimer ice machine, you can make them at home in no time! Here's how to do it:
To make snow cones at home, you'll need a few supplies. First, you'll need loads of ice. We recommend the Freezimer Ice Machine - it can make up to 33lbs of ice daily, so you'll have plenty for snow cones and other summer treats!
Next, you'll need a way to shave the ice. You can use a special snow cone machine, a blender or a food processor. If you're using a blender, make sure it's powerful enough to handle ice. We recommend using a food processor - it's easy to use and will give you the perfect consistency for snow cones.
You'll also need syrup. You can either buy pre-made syrup or make your own. If you're making your own, simply combine sugar, water and flavouring in a pot over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and the syrup is thick. Once it's cool, it's ready to use!
Finally, you'll need a few snow cone cups and straws. You can find these at the party supply stores or online.
Now that you have all of your supplies, you're ready to make snow cones at home. Just follow these simple steps:
How To Make A Snow Cone
If you have an ice shaver machine, making snow cones is easy! Just follow these simple steps:
- First, fill the ice shaver with ice cubes and turn it on.
- Next, hold a cup upside down under the shaved ice outlet and let the snow cone fill up.
- Once the cup is full, add your desired syrup flavour and stir.
- Repeat steps 2-3 until you have enough snow cones for everyone.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
If you don't have an ice shaver machine, you can still make snow cones at home. You'll just need to use a blender or a food processor to shave the ice instead. Here's how:
Place ice cubes in the blender or the food processor and pulse until they're finely shaved.
Scoop the shaved ice into cups and add your desired syrup flavour. Stir to combine.
How To Make The Perfect Snow Cone
The key to making the perfect snow cone is getting the right ice ratio to syrup. Too much syrup, and your snow cone will be sticky and oversweetened. Too little syrup, and it will be bland.
A good rule of thumb is to start with 1/2 ounce of syrup per cup of ice. Of course, you can always add more syrup if you want a sweeter snow cone, but it's easier to add more than to take it away.
Once the syrup is added, give your snow cone a quick stir to help distribute the flavour evenly. Then, dig in and enjoy!
Tips For Making Snow Cones With Your Freezimer Ice Machine
- To get the best results, we recommend setting the machine to make the small ice cubes. This will make it easier for the food processor to shave the ice and result in a fluffy snow cone.
- Don't let the shaved ice sit for too long before adding the syrup - it will start to melt and become more difficult to work with.
- If your snow cones are too sweet, try using sugar-free syrup or adding a bit of unsweetened flavour concentrate to offset the sweetness.
