Sugar on Snow
A favorite thing this time of year is the traditional sugar on snow. Served with pickles (for sour to cut the sweetness), plain doughnuts (for calories to keep from sugar crashing), and sometimes vodka (for.... fun?), it's pure New England spring bliss.
The maple syrup is heated to a thicker consistency, then ladled over fresh snow where it candies up into something taffy-like that can be scooped with a spoon or twirled with a fork into a small bite of heaven. And yes, it can be enjoyed while driving a tractor.
