Make maple taffy

After the feast, continue the fun outdoors! Get out your rubber boots and make some maple taffy on snow with the kids.


Pour 1 cup of maple syrup into a lightly greased saucepan.

Bring syrup to a boil. Using a candy thermometer, heat to 103.5 °C. Watch that it doesn’t boil over. If the taffy is too runny, just boil it a few minutes longer.

Remove from heat. With a spoon, spread a little of the taffy on clean snow.

Wait a few seconds for the taffy to solidify, pick it up with a stick or other kitchen utensil, and eat it.

Colouring activity

There’s more to a sugar shack than just sweet nothings. It’s a place to celebrate maple trees in all their splendour! Get your children to help support our industry by displaying their creations in the window.

By the numbers

40 litres

It takes an average of 40 litres of maple water to make 1 litre of maple syrup. The volume of the maple water is reduced by 62%.

300 years

A sugar maple can live a long time—a really long time! As a rule, you have to wait 45 years after planting before you can start collecting sap.

115 °C

That’s the magic number for making our beloved maple syrup. That means the maple water has to reach a temperature 3.5 degrees past the boiling point.
