Maple Syrup

Although I can't find large size jars of crunchy peanut butter on the shelves here in New York, (smooth seems to be the regional preference) I can find one of the best products produced right here in New England: Maple Syrup.

Maple syrup like this can only be found in specialty stores out West. Here, however, pure maple syrup lines the shelves like sentinels. This syrup isn't the watered-down, corn syrupy, preservative-saturated stickiness found in over-sized plastic bottles. No, this maple syrup is 100% pure and 100% yummy. It comes straight from the maple tree. I can't wait to see the whole process up close and personal this spring! And the best part is, a little goes a loooong way. It tastes great on all your standard breakfast dishes and even better on a scoop of ice cream. Who would have thought? I'm totally indulging in this sweet elixir while I can.
