Maple Raisin Pudding Recipe

Quebec supplies 80% of the world's maple syrup, due to its large maple forests and ideal weather. My husband, Stanley, and I are veteran sugar makers who still do many things the old-fashioned way. For 6 weeks each spring, we tend to 8,000 tree taps in addition to the milk "spigots" on the 50 cows at our dairy farm.—Chemin Holmes, Ayers Cliff, Quebec
