sugaring season

March 15, 2012

on Saturday I brought my friend from NYC to visit a real Vermont sugaring shack.  now that the days are warmer, the sap is flowing, and maple delights are on the menu in many forms.

Vermont maple syrup comes in varying grades:

“Vermont Fancy”
Light Amber color, delicate maple bouquet
Delightfully mild maple flavor, excellent on pancakes, waffles & ice cream.

“Vermont Grade A Medium Amber”
Medium Amber color, pronounced maple bouquet
Characteristic maple flavor;
Very popular for all around use.

“Vermont Grade A Dark Amber”
Dark Amber color, robust maple bouquet
Heartier maple flavor, very popular for table and all around use.

“Vermont Grade B”
The strongest and darkest table grade maple syrup
The rich maple flavor makes it the best grade for cooking.


maple cotton candy!

sugar on snow is a treat that consists of a base of freshly packed snow, a layer of maple syrup, and a donut and a pickle spear to round out the dish.  its a sticky and sweet treat that any Vermonter (or flatlander), young or old, can enjoy.
