Ms. Palmer and Mr. Houchens' classes had an old fashioned Vermont sugar-on-snow party as a bee celebration.
|Mrs. Palmer boils the syrup to the right temperature.|
Ms. Palmer's family makes makes maple syrup each spring when the days are warm and the nights are cold, creating the conditions for maple sap to run. It is then boiled into delicious maple syrup.
For sugar-on-snow, the syrup is cooked to the magic temperature of 234 degrees.
|Pouring the syrup right onto the snow!|
Winter Storm Stella brought us just the perfect conditions and mother nature delivered a beautiful day.
Students enjoyed the hot sticky syrup which forms a taffy when put on cold snow, along with the traditional doughnut and pickle. Yummy!!
