Maple taffy would have been made traditionally at the end of the maple season. It was a sweet treat for the children who would have helped all season long. The sap needs to be boiled just a bit longer than if you were making syrup. (To the soft ball candy stage) The boiling hot sticky syrup is then poured onto snow or in our case ice. The rapid cooling makes it form into a taffy / toffee or caramel.
