Sugar on Snow
I grew up reading Laura Ingalls Wilder books, and LOVING the part about sugar snow, and the sugaring-off party. It seemed nothing less than magical.
While sugaring today is very different than it was in Laura's time, the magical moments are still there. Sugar on snow is one of those. The maple syrup is heated up to just the right temperature and poured over pans of fresh snow to turn into a taffy-like candy. Served with pickles (to cut the sweet), and donuts (to cut the pickles?), this is a truly magical spring treat.
Come visit us some spring, and we'll do sugar on snow!
