    The Old Fashion Way

    I learned to make maple syrup the old fashioned way.   I've tapped trees, hung buckets, carried them to the collection bins with a wooden yoke collar over my shoulders.  Had the horsed drag the collection bins up to the sugar shack.   Ah, the good times, pure...

    Nothing Like It

    I never had pure maple syrup til my boyfriend's mom gave us a jar of it.  They used to  always make it when he grew up at home.  Well it is really good!  There is nothing like it.  It makes store boughten syrup seem so artificial.  I guess his mom...

    Nature's Sweetest Gift

    I love pure maple syrup.  There are only a few things in life that bring me greater joy than sugar-making.  Tapping the trees, collecting the sap, filtering, boiling and filtering to make the best maple syrup in the world. Thank you God for this great gift.  For...

    My Brother!

    We have been making syrup on our land for 150 yrs.  A lot of our trees are getting old and 4 got blown down during a wind storm last April.  I want to keep it going.  Lots of snow delayed us last year.  No Fancy!

    No More Fakers; Drat!

    When I learned that high fructose corn syrup was giving me insomnia I went to the store to find a substitute.  Maple syrup is the only option.  It is good, but somehow I miss Aunt Jemima.  There is a faint, bitter background-taste in maple syrup that...

    Why Settle For Less?

    I admit, I envy people who live where maple syrup is produced.  The whole culture sounds like fun.  I want to boil eggs in maple sap, and to drizzle hot syrup on snow and make chewy maple candy. There are plenty of things I would give up to save money for pure maple...
