 Ingredients List

  • --------------------------------INGREDIENTS--------------------------------
  • 1 c Of clean snow;
  • ->OR<-
  • 1 Tray of ice cubes;
  • 1/2 c Maple syrup;


Pan or bowl
Measuring cup
4 small paper cups

How to Make: Fill a pan with snow. Be sure it is clean. Have all your
ingredients ready before you bring in the snow, so it doesn't have time to
melt. If there isn't any snow, make crushed ice. An easy way to do this is
wrap a few cubes of ice at time in a kitchen towel and pound them with a
heavy object, such as a rolling pin. Put the crushed in a bowl. Continue
until all the cubes are crushed. Heat the maple syrup in the saucepan over
low heat for about two minutes until it is warm. Remove it from the heat.
Fill each paper cup with enough snow or ice to make a rounded top. Drop a
tablespoon or more of maple syrup on top of the snow or ice. Note: You can
use either pure maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup for this recipe.

STORY: In the center of Canada's flag is a red maple leaf-a symbol of
Canada's many maple trees. No wonder everyone likes to turn out in the
early spring to help collect the sweet liquid from the sugar maples. The
snow is still on the ground. The sap is gathered and boiled down into
maple syrup. As a special treat, the hot syrup is poured over fresh snow.
With cider and doughnuts, cups of sweet Maple Snow make festive
refreshments at a sugaring-off party.
