La Cabane à Pierre

Come please your sweet tooth

In the spring, the maple trees overflow with sap, which maple producers hasten to collect by tapping the trees. With this maple water, they make maple syrup as well as all the maple by-products like maple butter, maple sugar and maple taffy, to name but a few. Come taste this delicious regional product during a traditional home-made meal brought out with this tasty nectar at La Cabane à Pierre.

Activities at Pierre sugar shack

After such a delicious meal, go on a walk in the maple grove or dance to the rhythms of traditional music. Children will love to listen to Gédéo Brevet telling, them great stories. Come learn about the maple syrup production, from water to the final product. Maple water needs to be boiled to bring out the maple taste that will give the light or strong taste depending on the colour of the syrup. Today’s techniques allow the boiling of maple water faster than with the ancient techniques. Depending on the boiling time and on the boiling temperature, you can make maple syrup, maple taffy, and soft or hard maple sugar. In order to make one litre of maple syrup, 30 to 40 litres of water are needed! Up to 60 litres of water are needed to make maple sugar! A visit to the trapper camp will make you discover the universe of these important workers. Don’t forget the tasting of maple taffy on snow, an unforgettable experience!
