...unless it's yellow because you poured maple syrup into it!
We tried (and failed) to make La Tire, a french tradition from my husband's childhood. He boiled some maple syrup (we didn't have a candy thermometer, so we used our meat one.....and didn't get it to the correct temp, obviously). You're supposed to be able to make taffy with it....but we just got tasty yellow snow! The kids enjoyed it anyways & we're hoping for another fresh snowfall so we can go and collect some more & try again....with a candy thermometer!
