Thank you Pat, and thanks for the cool e-card!Thank you Snooker. I agree!Thank you Oddio! Gotta have real butter and real maple syrup! Poor guy -- he didn't know any better!
A fine set of pictures, Patti. I remember the scorn when this non-native had margerine and imitation maple-flavored syrup among his groceries at a store in Eau Claire. :>) I was new to the area.
Nothing better than maple syrup.
This is so cool ... love it ... thanks for posting.. and here is you ecard Happy St Patties Day..http://www.bluemountain.com/view_facebook.pd?p=3288343&m=6827&i=288250709&source=bmafb&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=pickup&ref=nf
Thank you Rosie! I buy it too -- it's worth the extra money to have the real thing! This is my friends' first crack at it, so I haven't tasted theirs.Thank you Maria!Thank you Ank! Oh! I think you would love it!
A nice photo, and the other side too I'm glad with all the info dow here because I was wondering. I even don't know maply syrup. Thanks.
Interesting, nice photo and puzzle.
I'll bring a Belgian waffle maker and my recipe. Nummy!!!!! Never had home grown syrup. Always buy it in the grocery store and the big bottle is around $20.00. But you don't need tons of syrup--a little goes a long way. Thanks for a fun puzzle. Rosie
Thank you TS !! (we crossed)
Robryan-- It's about the same price here. I always buy the quart bottle for about $18.Aggie-- Yay! I wonder how the taste compares. I've noticed a difference between a couple places around here and they're only about 75 miles apart.Painteronduty -- LOL!Sally -- I'm not an expert, but the ones around here do not add anything. They just cook and filter the sap. Not sure how long it takes -- sorry. But I know it takes nearly 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup! (I've never heard of anyone eating it right from the tree...?) I'll keep the light on for you!
Painter, don't tell Warbler, he'll be there in a flash! Patti, this is very interesting. Thanks for the posts and the info.
Gotta ask... Is the sap just cooked, or are their additives? How long does the process take? I would google it, but it's much more fun to get the info first hand from someone who's been there... :) :) Is it edible right out of the tree? Inquiring minds want to know.... Maple syrup lovers are on their way, soon be flying in from all over the world... Me too... Got the old Ford gassed up and ready to go.... Be right over... Thanks, Patti... :) :)
Sure its not a still? lol just kidding
They are tapping all the trees here - the pancake houses are all open now - yummy breakfasts being served. Pure Canadian Maple Syrup.
Oh YUM Patti!!! We get Canadian Maple Syrup here in the supermarkets & they charge about $7.00 for a small bottle!! Pancakes or waffles sounds great!!
Yes, they are making it right now. The sap is running because it's cold at night and warmish during the day. This was made by my friend's husband. He just does a little for fun. Waffles? Sure! C'mon up!Thanks Morris, Sandy and Laura!
Waffles? Are we having waffles? I am coming over.
Oh man! Now I want waffles.
Are they making it already, Patti?
