Hope some of you can make it tomorrow to try sugar-on-snow. We have a growing number of folks who grew up with this treat and look forward to getting some Maple Taffy from us. Maple Taffy is essentially sugar-on-snow in a jar. To make it the hot syrup is poured in jars, cooled in an ice bath and once at room temperature, then frozen for stability. The frozen taffy needs to be refrigerated to get it soft enough to scoop out of the jar. Traditionally you just enjoy it by the spoonful. The texture is like soft caramel only silky smooth on your tongue.
