Maple Maple Maple to get the Juices Flowing

March 5, 2011

Yes it is March, and for those of you who do not know it…this is when the Sugarwater really gets to flowing.  No I don’t mean Koolaide.  Maple sugar water, which is then boiled down to make maple syrup and Maple sugar.  To celebrate this beautiful fact of life in the Northern Western Hemisphere, ChickiePoo’s is having their MAPLE MAPLE MAPLE Weekend.  Now that the juices are flowing we will be celebrating a style of cooking originating a little closer to home.

The Native Americans originally showed the European Settlers how to tap the trees, collect the sap, boil it down.  Wow, what a great source of raw sugar.

We were closed last week-end because we participated with the judging and the preparation of the youth division recipe contest of the Sweet Victory Challenge at this year’s National Maple Syrup Festival in Medora, Indiana.
