This is a very old Canadian recipe that was handed down from one generation to the next. It is still as good today as it was then.

Top Review by Boomette

Grandp?res are very popular in Quebec. We have sugar shacks in my family and it's a recipe we often do during this special time of the year. Your recipe is great. The grandperes had a great texture. You didn't mention to lower the heat while boiling. We had to because it was boiling too much. And the dough has to cook slowly to have a nice texture. And while cooking the grandperes, never remove the cover as the steam is very important. Thanks Elmotoo :) Made for the Australian recipe swap for March 2012
