Maple Sugar-on-Snow

 Pans of clean packed snow

1

Prepare pans of clean packed snow and leave outside so they don't melt.

2

Heat Maple Syrup in largest pot available. Watch pot, turn heat down if it threatens to boil over.

3

When candy thermometer reaches 234º, remove from heat and cool slightly. Putting a little bit in a small cup on the snow will cool it a bit more.

4

Test by spooning a ribbon of the thickened warm syrup over the snow; if the syrup sticks on top of the snow and sticks to a fork like taffy, it's ready - if not it needs to cook just a bit longer.

5

Pour in thin ribbons over the pans of snow. Use your fork to pick up the ribbons and taste. After a taste of the sweet "sugar", take a nice bite of a sour pickle, and then bite of a home-made raised doughnut. After the doughnut bite - start again with another bite of "sugar"
