Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Maple Syrup

Fresh is pure New Hampshire maple syrup made by our friends from sap they collected the evening before.

If you’re interested in sugaring, check back on Monday when I’ll post more photos from our trip up north to their sugar shack.

A sweeter gift I’ve never received unless you count their delicious strawberry jam in the summer. 🙂

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Fresh.”

  2. Yummy syrup!
    On a giggle note: Right over the border from me there is a male strip joint called ‘The Sugar Shack’ 😉

    Great shot! Have you ever gone out on “maple weekend” here in NH? Lots of fun!

    • We went several years ago but for the past four or five we head north and see our friends before their busy weekend. It’s a wonderful industry but the average person who picks up a bottle of syrup from the store would be amazed at the work involved in producing real maple syrup. 🙂

    We visited a sugar shack for the first time last year. We loved learning about the process and returned home with our fair share of syrup.

    I grew up thinking that the blend of water/sugar/food color served on my pancakes was “maple syrup.” I was at least 20 by the time I tasted “the real thing” and boy, was I amazed! You are fortunate to live in the center of so much pure and healthy food availability!

    • I always ate the ‘real’ thing when at my grandparents’ farm here in NH and the store stuff in NY growing up and for many years in KS. Now that we are back here in the epicenter of maple sugaring we haven’t eaten anything but the real deal. Liquid gold for your breakfast plate and a great appreciation for the amount of work that goes into making it. 🙂

  14. Hi Judy,
    Wonderful photo! Today is Maine Maple Sunday and I wonder what people will do with the weather being so cold? We have only had a few days above freezing and that was a while back. Best wishes to them, it least it is a sunny day!

    What a great picture! I was thinking of you earlier when I read a recipe for Maple Cream Pie — they had me drooling in the keyboard but it wouldn’t be worth making with the syrup off the shelf. It needs some of that liquid gold you get! Enjoy!
