Today we are getting ready for the weekend.  This morning we made 3 gallons worth of fresh maple cream.  Yum, Yum, Yum.  And some of that went into one our new customer favorites – Maple Cream Cones!  These are bite sized ice cream cones filled with our ever so smooth and delicious pure maple cream (made from 100% maple syrup only).  They are 1.50 ea or a box of 6 for only 8.00.  Think about ordering these as a new treat to offer at your next kids birthday party.  You’ll be the Bomb!

Hours Sat 3/15 and Sun 3/16    12pm – 4pm

Finally had a decent run at the top of this week and looking for more after the storm passes by.  One sugar maker we know says there is nothing like a good rain to get the trees loosened up.  But we still aren’t looking for it to be too warm yet.  Everyone else is flying off to Florida and Cancun for those spring break trips.  Leave that weather there for now.  Your local maple producers need a bit more winter yet.

Brian had a chance to make some fresh maple candies the other day.  Here’s a picture of them all lined up ready to go into their boxes.

We have decided to do sugar-on snow again on Saturday since it doesn’t look like we’ll have enough sap to collect and boil by then.  So come give it a try on us.  And as always we’ll have other maple samples out to try.   If the temperatures hold up we might actually be boiling on Sunday.  Maybe – hopefully…….

Open 12pm – 4pm   Sat 3/8/14 and Sun 3/9/14

Keep your eyes open for melting this weekend.  If the temperatures get up where they say we should see another run this weekend.  Please, please, please!!

Hope some of you can make it tomorrow to try sugar-on-snow.  We have a growing number of folks who grew up with this treat and look forward to getting some Maple Taffy from us.  Maple Taffy is essentially sugar-on-snow in a jar.  To make it the hot syrup is poured in jars, cooled in an ice bath and once at room temperature, then frozen for stability.  The frozen taffy needs to be refrigerated to get it soft enough to scoop out of the jar.  Traditionally you just enjoy it by the spoonful.  The texture is like soft caramel only silky smooth on your tongue.
