B.W.O.S … bring your own syrup … Maple Syrup, that is!!

Posted on 10. Mar, 2012 by

Let’s see … here in Vermont the sap is flowing … and even in this crazy winter that was/wasn’t … the sap really is still flowing!!  I think that perhaps living in Vermont, I take for granted that Maple Syrup is a staple across the country … or even, in New England.  But my son and I quickly realized that is NOT the case on a recent college tour staying at various spots around New England.  ”What is this stuff?”  ”Why don’t they have Real Maple Syrup?” ” We should have brought our own Dakin Farm Maple Syrup!” Because really, pancakes and waffles aren’t the same with out the “real deal”!!

Well, what is the “real deal”?  Unless you live in a place where you can take the time to visit a Sugar House … you might not know exactly where/how real Maple Syrup is  produced.  And guess what … it is pretty amazing actually.  This video is just the tip of the iceberg … and yes … some maple syrup is still collected with horse and cart.  So take  a peek ….

Pure Vermont Maple Syrup: Sugarmakers in Action.

Dakin Farm works with the finest Vermont Sugar Makers to produce the finest Maple Syrup in Vermont … mmmm … Throw that on some Dakin Farm Buttermilk Pancakes combined with their cob-smoked bacon, etc …. and your mouth experience a little bit of heaven.  Or drizzle some on top of some vanilla ice-cream!  Did you know there are different grades of Maple Syrup? … and that you might consider having several types in your pantry? … next blog, I will treat you to a little Maple Syrup Education … for now … enjoy the video!

Oh … and if you are a drivable distance … make sure to mark your calendars for some sugar on snow and more …
