…at least for me it does, and it’s always exciting when the sap buckets arrive. growing up in VT, the buckets were as common as the cows. i always loved seeing them put out, ready to be filled and made into my favorite drink.. i mean, pancake topping. yes i am guilty of drinking it straight out of the bottle. still do it in fact….legend has it, my great-grandmother used to sip it with a straw. yum!
New Hampshire Maple Weekend is March 24 & 25 – as is Vermont’s – so hopefully everyone will be able to check out a local sugarhouse to see the amazing process. For information: New Hampshire Maple Producers Association, Inc.
