Join us for some tasty goodness at The Watershed Institute this Saturday and learn about the science of sugaring! Our Watershed Educators will explain the science behind this springtime ritual: why maple trees are preferable to other trees, how the sugar content of the sap changes as the days lengthen and other fun facts.
Next, take part in our maple syrup taste test and try local samples and other variations, including imitation “maple syrup” that is made with corn syrup. Which one do you like best?
Did you know you can use maple syrup in your coffee, dribbled on bacon and splashed over ice cream? Try some maple syrup in new ways, such as a glaze on grilled vegetables, on candied nuts, on baked beans, and as a sweetener in baking? There are many magical ways to use maple syrup along with a traditional splash on oatmeal, pancakes and waffles!
There are two Maple Sugar Brunch seatings — at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. — and a portion of the proceeds will go toward the Camp Scholarship Fund to help make this summer special for a deserving child. So book your adventure now!
