This year we were accompanied by Miss J, Steve, and Ryleigh. I love sharing all of our Vermont traditions with the newest generation of our family. xxx
The Sugar House is a very busy operation during the boil, but it never ceases to amaze me how well the whole operation works....like a fine oiled machine.....they work so well together and always know what needs to be tended to at the exact minute.
We were treated to a delicious dinner during our visit. The Vermont hospitality never ceases to amaze me! Now, let me first say that I am not a big fan of hot dogs. BUT.......Terri boiled the hot dogs in maple sap......NOT syrup.....but fresh sap....and then put them on the grill for a few minutes and served them on toasted rolls. I have never in my life tasted anything so amazing!!!!
She also served us her homemade chili. Oh we were very happy visitors!!!! :-)
And the dessert!!!! Good Lord the deliciousness of the dessert!!!! There is nothing, and may I repeat nothing more delicious than a warmed raised donut dipped in freshly boiled maple syrup fresh out of the boiler. Not even chocolate is better than this. AMEN!
Thank you so much for such a fun evening to Terri, Steve, and Josie!!!! Good company, a hot dog cooked the Vermont way, homemade chili, and a beer. It doesn't get much better than that!!!
Praying that the weather allows you many more boils this year!!! xxooo
