Where maple sugar comes from...and, no, not the stork

Where maple sugar comes from…and, no, not the stork

There’s nothing quite more New Englandy than maple syrup.  Just think about how versatile it is:  put it on your favorite breakfast food, mix it into cocktails, use it for baking, or just free-base the stuff to get it right into your blood stream.  What it comes down to is this:  we purely and wholeheartedly love us some maple syrup.  And, if you’re truly a New Englander and Nutmegger at the core then you love it as much as we do.

Haven’t you ever wondered how that awesome sauce ends up in those pretty bottles and glass containers?  Well, dear OmNomivores, wonder no more:  Stamford Museum & Nature Center is holding a Maple Syrup Workshop just for adults on Sunday, February 23 from 10 am to noon.  If you’re a member, the cost is $20, and if you’re a non-member it’ll be $35 each.

So, what’s that getcha?  You’ll get an interactive, hands-on experience that takes you through the entire process.  You’ll be such experts by the time this is over that you’ll be able to do all of this at home and tap yo’ own trees and make yo’ own syrup.  To get there, they’ll show you which trees are tappable, how you collect the sap, how you turn it into maple syrup, and even how to bottle it.

Just sayin’, but this would make a great Valentine’s Day present for your little Pooh Bear, would be a great date, or just something sweet (get what we did there?) to do on a Sunday.  If you want any more information, then call up Will Kies at (203) 977-6588 or drop him an e-mail at wkies@stamfordmuseum.org.  When you’re ready to register and pre-pay, call up SM&NC at (203) 977-6521.

And, hey keep another series of dates open:  March 1 and 2!  We’ll have more on this soon…
