First of the Season Maple Syrup

 

First, a disclosure: I like pure maple syrup. I really like it. It is not an overstatement that I love maple syrup.

            My mother was born and raised in maple syrup country (southern Quebec and northern Vermont) and so we always had pure Vermont maple syrup on our table at home. I didn’t think much of it I suppose. To me it seemed ageless: it kept well in the cool of the basement and seemed the same season to season.

            My mother only ate it in the spring—when it was just fresh from the trees and evaporator. And it is different then. I love maple syrup year round but my mother was right, it has a special brightness in the spring. New syrup is Vermont’s best food at its absolute freshest. Tonight’s was made by Easty Long just a few days ago. Enjoy.
