Tire sur neige (Maple syrup on snow), is a typical French-Canadian tradition. It is most often served at a Cabane à sucre (Sugar Shack). The warm maple syrup is poured over clean snow, & becomes soft taffy that is wound onto sticks & savored.
Sugar Shack, Montérégie, Québec ~ Tapped maple trees and barn. I have had fresh (right from the trees) maple syrup from trees in Quebec and Ontario. Both are famous for their quality syrup. (No pollution in the air :-D)
