Maple Syrup...yum!

Maple Syrup...I love it and it's all natural! If I haven't mentioned it before I'm a foodie...well, our entire family are foodies. We love to peruse cook books, magazines, Pinterest, we also enjoy gathering in the kitchen to create scrumptious dishes. What follows is the eating...yummmm!

On Friday the mail lady delivered a very special surprise....Vermont Maple Syrup, from our sweet friends. Thank you Ranney Family...what a treat!!!! Their family worked hard to  gather the sap and turn it into syrup. They blogged their experience, what a neat process.

We have done a bit of research on tapping trees and watched a few videos of the process. We plan to tag our trees this fall in hopes to tap them next year. We'd love to have fresh maple syrup right from our own trees....that's if we do it right?!?! I'm sure I'll be calling on the Ranney family for advice;)

Now we need to whip up a batch of waffles, drizzle them with yummy Vermont Maple Syrup and savor every bite:)

Do we have a long and cold enough winter here in TN for tapping the trees? I really don't know. My grandfather had a farm in upstate NY - - - within an hour of Albany. When we were young, he tapped the trees and boiled his own sap. Mom and Grandma made homemade maple candy. Unbelievable taste. Not like the maple cream candies in the store today. Wonderful, wonderful memories.

Miss Lynda...yes we know several families who tap their trees here in Tennessee, yet, I don't believe they get the amount that those in upper states gather. We shall see:) If nothing else it will a neat experience.

Maureen...Yes, I'm on pinterest but haven't had time to use it due to no internet service at home. When I get it going I'll let you know, thank you for visiting our blog:)
