Before Easter Emma, along with her Daddy and Nana, tapped some maple trees along our driveway. I love maple syrup season and think it is something everyone should experience, whether it's making maple syrup back at the camp or at a sophisticated maple syrup production - it's pretty amazing what mother nature provides us!
Recently, we headed back to Dean's Uncle's camp to see what was happening to all that sap Emma and Nana had been collecting. It was a pretty muddy walk!
And then came the best part...taste testing!
It was such a great afternoon with our family and friends. Dustin fell asleep in Nana's arms before we left and Emma almost fell asleep as we went and collected sap on the Ranger. No problem getting the kids to bed that night!
One of my favorite recipes using real maple syrup is Baked Salmon with soy sauce and garlic. Check out the recipe here. What's your favorite recipe using maple syrup?
