Celebrate Maple Month with Rice Snow

Sugaring Season in Massachusetts is in full swing! Storrowton Village Museum celebrates all things maple with our Maple Harvest Day, held every March. The Gilbert Farmhouse turns into a sugarhouse for the day, hearth cooking demos feature maple recipes and the West Springfield Lions Club hosts a pancake breakfast to benefit our educational programs.

Maple Rice Snow is a sweet and simple recipe.


Love maple, too? Make some Maple Rice Snow, a recipe that dates back to 1878 and featured in our Maple Harvest Sampler cookbook.


2 cups maple syrup
1 cup whipped cream
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp grated nutmeg
4 cups cooked rice


Instructions: Put syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add cornstarch. When mixture thickens, let cool. Combine mixture with cooked rice and beat well. Put in a glass dish and chill. Top with whipped cream and grate nutmeg on top. For a creamier texture, use short-grained rice.
