  1. Pour a cup or two of 100% pure maple syrup into a tall pan.
  2. Turn the heat to medium-low.
  3. Slowly simmer the syrup until is reaches 235 degrees F (113 C) . This takes about 25 minutes. See the video for how the bubbles change as it nears that temperature.
  4. Bring the pan outside and pour into the snow in long strips.
  5. Lift from the snow and enjoy!

Helpful Hints:

  • Don’t use a short pan. Don’t set the stove to high. (See the video for what happens if you make this mistake.)
  • Make sure the snow is clean.
  • Use 100% maple syrup for best results.
