Sugaring

As I sit looking out the window, even now, I am sure that spring will come… soon… maybe… for sure.  We still have a good foot of snow covering the ground (all of it) and snow flakes are swirling by.  This is crazy, she says.  It is April after all.  But it’s true.

And we are still sugaring.  Sap ran for a little while way back in February.  Then it got cold… for a long time.  The past several weeks have been perfect weather for sugaring – two seasons in one.  So we’re still trekking up into the woods, five gallon collection pails in hand, emptying the tree buckets, hauling the sap to our friends’ sugar house to distill sap into liquid gold.

    I don’t envy you all that snow. It’s finally greening up here, but the sky is so gray compared to AZ.

    I heard recently that real maple syrup is the new superfood, as in antioxidant. So slather up your pancakes without guilt.
