Did You Know Tuesday
Did you know that 40 gallons of maple syrup will only produce one quart of pure maple syrup?  It's maple syrup season here in the great Northeast...Maine being the greatest...and the syrup producers have been working long hours getting their delicious product cooked and bottled for sale.

This past Sunday was Maine Maple Sunday in which the sugarhouses of Maine were open to the public for tours and tastings.  Very soon, Maine maple syrup from this spring will be arriving somewhere near you. While Vermont leads the US in syrup production, it's really no contest...Maine's is better, but we also like our New England neighbor's syrups, too.

It's great on your standards like pancakes, but here's a little taste-tip for you out there:  take it from this Mainah - next time you're dishing out some ice cream, put a little maple syrup on it. It takes the word YUM to new levels of yummyness.
