I can't really think of anything more perfect, more decadent, to do on a sunny fresh snowy winter day than make maple syrup candy! When I was a kid, my mom and dad used to love doing this with my sister and I, and of course we really loved eating this sweet, chewy, cold treat.
It is so easy to make, and it's 1 delicious ingredient- maple syrup. If you are super lucky to be able to tap trees and make your own syrup, like my sister does in Wakefield, Quebec, then I declare my envy. If you're like me, just head over to your local farmer's market and pick up a bottle of this amber gold. And if you don't live in a northern climate, well, read on and salivate freely!..
It doesn't get more local than this! Enjoy...
