Snow candy

Today I was inspired by Little House in The Big Woods to try to make maple sugar snow candy.  With the help of the Greenhaus kids I gave it a shot.  Our first setback was when the maple syrup came out in a moldy clump.  Turns out I should have taken the “refrigerate after opening” more seriously.  So I switched to melted butter and sugar and we made something more like butterscotch, but still drizzled on snow.  We only got one really good batch in before it burned — turns out the sucker (pun intended) is very finicky — but it was fun anyway, and a learning experience.  I’ll do better next time.  Here are some pics.
