i think the taste for maple sugar is something not everyone has, but oh, for me walking into the sugar house was far better than an ice cream shop. or candy store. jeff was a superior host.
and this is his evaporator! i don't even know if it's called that because it's so high tech. the last sugar operation i visited was wood fired and rustic. this is an organic operation, even the filtering system containing diatomaceous earth and cotton paper is screened to insure it's organic.
a huge thank you to jeff, for the visit, and the excellent sampling that we all enjoyed.
and sunset, when the wind was blowing and the rain spat, this was the back meadow. a gift.
