Maple Weekend April 7th and 8th

These barrels need to be filled!  We had an earlier run of sap in February and are now waiting patiently for warmer temperatures.  Conditions look good for next week!

We’re also preparing for our open house on the Maple Weekend.  Come visit us on April 7 and 8.  We’ll have some maple treats, samples of delicious maple syrup and tours of our newly renovated sugar shack and pump house.  Visit the Maple Weekend website at mapleweekend.ca for more information and directions.

My brother and his wife will be making the trip from Singapore for a Christmas visit this year. I have promised a traditional holiday for them – I apologize in advance to some of you, but I will be hoping for snow! His lovely wife hasn’t experienced the wonderful white stuff before and I’m really hoping we get some while they are here – since it will be December, the odds are good.

And, of course, what is more traditional or Canadian than pure delicious maple syrup! I plan on incorporating this healthy, sweet ingredient into as many Christmas delicacies as I can. Add in snowshoeing and hot chocolate in the sugar bush, a few snow angels, a good snowball fight, and quality time with family and I think my Christmas menu will be complete!

Here are three recipes I plan to serve my guests this Christmas:

Maple Syrup Gingerbread Cookies

Maple French Toast Cups

Maple Glaze for Ham
