I love maple flavored things. I grew up in Ohio and when I was younger my parents would always take me and my siblings to the Geauga County Maple Festival. I would get sick from all the maple candy I would eat. My dad and I would always get these things called maple stirs. It was maybe about 2 ounces of hot maple syrup in a little styrofoam bowl with a flat wooden spoon. You would stir the hot maple syrup until it started to cool. After what seemed like hours of stirring it would harden into maple candy. My dad is a scientist. He would always explain to me the boiling point and solid and liquid and how it related to the stirring and cooling and all these things I didn't listen to. I was only wanting to frantically stir to get the maple syrup to harden. I was so impatient. To this day he will explain things to me in scientific terms. The difference is that now, I listen to him.
