M-m-m-m-m-m Maple!

Awhile back, Jessie, of A Piece of Vermont, had a post on her blog about going to a friend's sugarhouse where maple syrup happens. Lots of pictures and I was fascinated. I commented that I didn't think I'd ever tasted real maple syrup. She said I broke her heart :-)

A big box was on the porch yesterday when I came home from errands and inside was this!



Look at the syrup with the sun shining through it...pure gold!

Well after over 6 decades now I can truly say I've tasted maple syrup. This morning I got out a happy plate.



Then there was this..

And finally...

and life is soooooooo good! Thanks so much Jessie!

Oh, I didn't know that! I guess I just take it for granted since it is right here that everyone has "the real thing".

Glad you got some. It is wonderful...

Oh honey I never knew you have never tried maple syrup. I am so glad that you were spoiled and someone sent you some.

Hugs!!!

Lovely post. I expect maple syrup sales to increase after people read this. :-)
