Each march, every Quebecers need sugar to help them finish the very long winter. And what better way then going to a "sugar shack" and celebrate spring arrival. As soon as the moon is right, or the wind from the southwest blows a certain way, the maple syrup producers head into the sugar bush and begin tapping their trees. The buckets fill with a sweetish, watery liquid that will be boiled down to make the delicately flavoured syrup everyone loves on pancakes.
In Montreal, there is fake sugar shacks on the Plateau Mont-Royal and in the Old Port, but for the real deal you will need to go outside the city and travel around 30 minutes (mostly on the south shore of Montreal) to find a place where traditional music and food are served. If your are here end march of beginning of april, you have to try it.
