    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...

    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!
