Ingredients & Tools
- Slopeside Syrup (preferably amber grade)
- Fresh clean snow or blend ice in a food processor until it resembles snow
- Food Thermometer
- Fork or Popsicle Stick
- Dill Pickles
Pour 1 – 2 cups of Slopeside Syrup into a pot and bring to a boil. Let boil for a few minute until syrup reaches 235°. Pack snow into bowl or serving dish. Next, pour a ribbon of hot syrup over the packed snow. The syrup should harden almost immediately into a taffy like consistency. (If syrup does not harden immediately, return it to boil for a few more minutes.) Finally, use a popsicle stick or fork to twist up the hardened syrup and enjoy with a pickle.
Why the pickle?
The sour saltiness of the pickle cuts the sweetness so that one can continue to enjoy the taffy like syrup over and over.
