Taffy trough, detail shot


Sorry for that interruption! Back to fooling the eye.

A smallish pot is used to dip into boiled-down maple syrup, at the soft-ball stage, and pour into onto fresh snow, weather permitting, for fresh maple taffy. Sometimes popsicle sticks are laid on the snow before pouring to make grabbing and eating the candy a little less messy, as you can see at the left-hand side of this photo.

The resulting chewy, sticky candy can be pulled, stretched, or simply gobbled right away, according to one's taste, almost the minute it has hit that cold snow. Yum!
