The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

The makings of a wonderful dessert are just outside your door: fresh, fluffy snow. Before you put on your boots to harvest it, make a flavored syrup:

For each snow-cone, thin 1/4 cup fruit jam or jelly with a little warm water to make a syrup. If you're using jam, force the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer to remove the fruit.

Pack fresh, clean snow into a small glass and pour the syrup on top. Garnish with strained-out fruit if desired.
