With every spring comes Sugar Shack season here in Quebec. The Maple trees give us there good water that we then proceed to boil for a long time until it becomes Maple Syrup, Sirop D'Érable in French. When cooked even longer, it becomes Maple Taffy, Tire D'Érable. Cabane à Sucre is the place where you can eat all of the delicious meals made out of maple. Such as: Fèves aux lards, Saucisses dans le sirop, Pouding chômeur, Tarte au sucre, Tire sur neige, Grand-Père, etc. />

Here's how you can make homemade Maple Taffy on Snow or Ice


  • 1 Can Maple Syrup
  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Candy Thermometer
  • Snow or Ice


  1. Pour the whole maple syrup can into the big pan. It needs to be big because when the sugar boils, it more then triples in size. Turn heat to medium-high. Observe, and place the thermometer. After about 10 minutes or once it reaches 115°C or 238 °F, it's ready.
  2. Take a large container and fill it with snow. Make sure the snow is compact. You can also place water in a pan and wait for it to freeze.
  3. Pour a small quantity of hot taffy over the snow and wait a few seconds for it to become hard. Take your stick and roll the taffy around. Enjoy and try not to get too sticky!
