      Whats up guys and gals. Just thought I would share some photos and chit chat about making maple syrup this year. It was super fun and cant wait intill next year. It was a tough year as the flow was not as hard as most years due to the funky weather we are having here in the North East. Well atleast in New Jersey. It needs to fall below freezing and rise above the 40s during the day to flow.

      PM me for a tin

      Maple syrup from Joizey? Would it be unfair to ask for it to be certified free of carcinogens?

      Visited KE Farm in Sturbridge, MA a couple of weeks ago after going to Old Sturbridge Village (OSV). Saw smoke rising on the hillside above OSV and knew he was running the sugar shack.

      Just visited a sugar shack in NH last Friday.

      Bought four quarts Vermont Grade C from Carmen Brook farm last fall when they were clearing it out.

      I should make some maple cornbread soon: http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=359353.

      Friends in an Amaericana/bluegrass/folk group were in canads a couple of years ago. They send us some birch syrup. Very different from maple syrup. Very good. Very expensive, since it's a 90 - 100 : 1 reduction.

      Ever try making beer out of the sap?

      A friend tapped several trees and was at the amount of sap he was collecting. Got tired of staying up to 11 PM on work nights boiling sap. He also home brews, so he made some beer. He said it was great.

      Met my wife and a work colleague today at the teams' shoot around for the NCAA east regionals in the Boston garden tomorrow. A someone my wife works with is going to the Maple days in NH this weekend.
