I gave my granddaughter one with cranberry juice and mine was made with red wine. We sat in the fresh snow with the sun on our faces and enjoyed.

Sugar on snow! Best way to use up last year's maple syrup before sugaring season. Boil down old maple syrup until thickened, then drizzle over pans of fresh snow. It hardens into sticky, gooey, oh-so-sweet chewy goodness. Best eaten with Gram's homemade donuts, the sourest dill pickles you can find and black coffee!

Yes!! That's what I meant when I mentioned the maple taffy—I love that tradition though of eating it with bitter and sour things!

Niknud, Did you ever get this at the sugar house? That's what I remember from my days growing up in central New England in early March - sugar on snow, donuts and sour pickles. I was too young to be allowed coffee (Ok with me at the time.) And the rare sugar house that still used horses and sleds to bring in the sap, OMG! Enjoy the new sugaring season, I'm currently too far south to get it in southern Virginia.

We always made "snow ice cream" every year when we were little: scoop a bowl of fresh snow, add heavy raw cream, sugar, and a drizzle of vanilla extract. Stir just barely, eat!
