Canadian Syrup
One sweet “Sugar Shack” in Quebec has a rich history, with sugary tales to tell.

I thought my friend from the Quebec area, Darren Moss, was exaggerating when he spoke with an almost reverential awe about putting maple syrup onto snow as a child, and gobbling up the “sugar on snow,” as it is known in Canada. His eyes almost took on an amber-colored glow as he talked fondly about what he, like many Canadians, calls the country’s “liquid gold.” Of course, he tipped into his more covetous side when I asked to try some of his private syrup stash on my pancakes. “Not a chance,” he said. “I carried this all the way from Quebec, where I bought it at the famous Millette Sugar Shack...and, if you want some, you’re going to have to go there and get some yourself.”
