My daughter had a really cool French extra credit assignment. For extra credit, she made a video of herself making Maple Taffy. It was really fun (and really sweet)!
I asked her if I could share her video on here and she gave me permission. So here is her video:
My hand is horribly shaky apparently! But she did all of the cooking and editing herself!
And here is how to make Maple Taffy:
Ingredient: Maple Syrup
adult (if older kids are helping out)
cookie sheet/pan/flat surface
What to do:
Bring the maple syrup to a light boil on the stove.
Turn the heat down and continue to stir until has a thicker consistency.
Spread the snow (or crushed ice) out on the cookie sheet.
Drizzle the warm syrup in lines on the snow.
Press the back end of a spoon or a craft stick on the end of a line of maple syrup and roll the stick, winding the hardening maple syrup around it.
