Vermont Maple Open House Weekend   
Throughout Vermont

Watch and see how Maple Syrup is made. From the tree to the
table, experience one of Vermont's oldest traditions. See the use
of some modern sap gathering equipment mixed with
the traditional wood fired evaporator. Sample the very best,
fresh off the evaporator and take some of Vermont's first
crop of the year home with you.  For more info visit:

Notes from the Heart...

If I were to name the top 101 things to taste before, you know, you leave this good
earth,
right up there on the list would be warm freshly-made maple syrup.  The
only way to do that is to visit one of the many sugaring operations throughout
northern New England (many are open for maple syrup tastings during the
sugaring season...
which is right now!)  But as Jim Hyde points out in this week's
article
Maple Sugar: New England's Liquid Gold, don't wait long to make the
visit...the season is "short and unpredictable."  If you're heading to New
Hampshire, check out some of the
NH maple syrup events happening through
April.

Once you get your gallon of fresh liquid gold, don't just use it for pancakes.  
Spread the sweet joy in your cooking...and try this recipe for .
Maple Syrup Bread!

The Frugal Yankee Tip of the Week

Have you ever smelled an old microwave? Yuck! To freshen your nuker, combine
1 cup water, the juice of 1/2 lemon and the rind, and 5-6 cloves. Microwave on
high for 5 minutes. Dump the cup's contents into your compost pile.
