Pure Maple Candy ~*~ Made 11/24/12 ~*~ came out great - a quarter of the cost of store-bought. Took less than a minute stirring at the end and then hardens in seconds. Did not add nuts. One cup syrup makes about 14 1-inch candies. Use tall pan since it boils very high.
Eat an 1800s treat! Collect fresh, clean snow (snow clinging to pine trees adds some flavor) and pack it into a pail or bowl. Leave it outside while you boil one or more cups of pure maple syrup for six or seven minutes, stirring often. (To make it thicker, add a quarter cup of butter per cup of maple syrup.) Pour the syrup over the snow and eat up – the perfect winter treat.
