Oh, how delicious maple syrup is! I can't say I've ever experience the maple syrup season first hand since I grew up in California. But, my father (83 yrs) has fond memories of tasting the sap from the buckets on the way to and from school when he was growing up in Vermont.

I'd forgotten all about maple sugaring season until I saw, in Massachusetts last weekend, a lot of tubing leading out of a cemetery to a big plastic tub on a truck. They were collecting sap, the modern way, from the sugar maples in the graveyard.

Cathy June, I think of Vermont as Maple Central, but I guess the Quebecois would argue with me! I love molasses, too, but somehow it hasn't lent itself to kids' books the way maple sugaring has!

MJN, what an interesting sight. And in a graveyard, no less. Good scene for a book!

That books sounds like it tastes wonderful! I'd love to experience maple sugaring season sometime. Although I might pass on the kind from the graveyard.

On second thought, maybe that kind would taste the best- those trees have got to have great fertilizer! I think I'll still pass.

That's funny, Holly. Right now one of the trees in our yard is just ripe for sugaring, so we may give it a try. I'm not quite sure where to get the supplies, though.
