Word is, it has been a pretty decent sugaring season this year in Vermont. I am sure some of our sugarmaking friends can tell us if that is true or not but there is absolutely nothing like fresh warm maple syrup.
We visited a local sugarhouse last week and thought we'd share some of the pictures from our adventure. If you are visiting Vermont during the sugaring season, you must stop by one of the these and take a look. Each is different with varying degrees of technology but did we mention, there is nothing quite like warm, fresh Vermont maple syrup? Oh we did.
They Raymond family are just down the road in Hartland, Vermont and have the perfect set up to check out the whole process. We watched them gather the sap (from buckets and from their lines), boil, and went home with a fresh warm quart of syrup! You can go to their own site
and purchase your very own! After seeing all the work and involved AND tasting its deliciousness, It is soooooo worth the small investment to have pure Vermont maple syrup!
