It’s hot out there.  To help remember that it can be cool, here’s one of those shots that was hiding from me in the library.

Back in February we went to Quebec City for the Winter Carnaval.  It was great fun.

One of the things that greets you almost immediately is the Cabane à Sucre.  Having not grown up in a maple forest, this was a new one for me.  Here’s how it works.  Make a big snow bank.  Pack it down and smooth off the top.  Then get a pitcher of maple syrup and heat it, reducing until it is more concentrated will set up when it cools.  Then ladle it out in striped on top of the snow.  Hand a wooden stick — regulation tongue depressor works fine — to eagerly waiting child.  Get aforementioned child to wait until the syrup cools enough to be wound up like a lollipop.  Like the song says, the waiting is the hardest part.  Good, maple-y.  Very sweet.  You will not need two.
