Syrup Season

The sap from the maple trees started running a little later than normal this year. Warm(ish), sunny days and cold nights make the perfect recipe for full sap buckets. Several of our farmers tap their own trees, sit for hours as the sap boils down and sell the beautiful, golden syrup at our market. Stop by Skinner’s Sugarbush, Cornell Farm, Barbers Farm or Sweet Tree Farm this Sunday and ask them how the season’s going. And while you’re there, pick up some syrup and treat yourself to pancakes for dinner! Here’s a recipe for oatmeal pancakes.
