A Sugar Snow!!!
Pure Maple Syrup
1. Gather your snow in a large pan or bowl.
2. Heat syrup in a saucepan until approximately 235-240 degrees depending on how hard you want your candy to be. IF YOU DONT HAVE A CANDY THERMOMETER HERE is a tutorial on how to do it the old way before our modern kitchen tools.
3. When the syrup is heating make sure to keep it at a rolling boil not letting it boil up. WATCH IT CAREFULLY! and adjust heat accordingly.
4. We put it into our gravy boat to pour it then, easier and safer by my mommy standards! Then slowly pour over snow, don't pour too much on top of itself or it will just sink down in the pan. Then you can make swirly designs, letters, etc. The snow helps it harden and then ENJOY! DELICIOUS!
