Sugar shacks are a springtime “must” in Québec. Traditional-style or innovative, they all offer a festive ambiance. Almost every dish is bathed in maple syrup: ham, baked beans, sausages, eggs, pancakes. Once replete, you get to dance your heart out to folk tunes or go for a sleigh ride or hike in the woods... taffy stick in hand, of course!
Our maple syrup smells and tastes great: a pure delight!
Most sugar shacks are open in March and April, but some serve up meals year-round.
“Grandfathers in maple syrup” are dumplings cooked in maple syrup. Yum!
