Quick, Before It Gets Dirty! Before It Melts! Maple Syrup Ices

9 Feb

Been waiting so long to do it that I almost ran out of real New York Maple Syrup to do it with (Sugar Brook Maple Farms, Kerhonkson, NY)!

Maple Snow

Maple Snow

But a few scoops of fresh snow(center cut) and some drizzles of maple syrup later, Leandro and the neighbors had real ices, Little House on the Prairie style…or in more modern parlance Maple Nemo Sno-Cones…..

Are postal workers wishing that no-delivery Saturdays had started now, rather than August?

    Note to Readers on this reblog: It would seem that I was doing something very similar at this time last year to what I am doing now!

    Wait! I thought you were in Puerto Rico? Where did it snow and what a fun idea.

      We were visiting Puerto Rico! We live in New York and just got through Blizzard Nico relatively unscathed!

    Hi Natalia,
    My paternal grandparents were farmers in Eastern Ontario. When my 2 brothers + 2 sisters and I visited on weekends in the winter we always looked for the tell-tale plastic wash tub of fresh granular snow. “Maple taffy!” At least that’s what we called it. Gramma would be boiling up the bottom of the maple syrup jug in late winter . . . on her massive wood cook stove. When I was really young, the syrup was made right on the farm.
    The hot, thickened syrup would be drizzled over the sand-textured snow and we’d use forks to twirl the chilled ‘taffy’ into our mouths. Until our teeth ached . . . or our parents noticed how much we’d eaten. Thanks for prompting that happy memory.

    Now that’s making the most of a snow storm! How tasty! Wish I’d thought of that!

    There certainly is plenty of the white stuff around. Leandro and his friends must have enjoyed everything about the day.

    Pretty bad, that was…

    Natalia, that is very inventive. I hope the snow clears soon. It reads pretty ad from this side of the pond.
    Best,
    Conor

      We’re doing fine here, thank you Conor! A relatively easy dig out and lots of melty crisp sunshine!!!
