On Friday Big Chuck, Tyke and I went to our very first traditional Québecois sugar shack. I remember going out into the forest in the early Spring with my classmates in elementary school, but there seems to be a very unique Cabane à Sucre culture here in Quebec.
We were invited, along with the rest of Big Chuck's lab to his professor's cabin about an hour outside of Montreal. Everyone brought a little something for a pot luck lunch and we collect sap from the sugar maple trees. For dessert we were treated to french toast with maple syrup and then maple syrup on snow too. YUM!
It was really nice to experience an authentic Cabane à Sucre Québecoise, now I'm eagerly awaiting the locally produced jar of maple syrup we were promised!
