Since I’m all fired up today, might as well state my unwavering opinion on syrup. If it’s not real-live syrup from a maple tree, it’s not worth eating. There, I said it. And I KNOW there are those of you out there who would disagree. We’ll just chalk it up to insanity.
And, yes, I do spend like 10, okay maybe even 15, extra dollars per bottle of syrup. I am unwilling to cut this item from our budget, bad economy or no.
(The syrup pictured is from our friends, the Blackwells, in New Hampshire. They tap and make maple syrup. Pretty cool hobby, eh?)
