Oh My Sweet Maple

April 02, 2014

I’m sitting at my dinning table staring at the accumulation of snow. Winter is still here and I’m anxiously waiting for spring. This winter was intense. I can’t believe how much it snowed. Last month I decided to explore through our backyard. It proved to be a vigorous hike as the snow came up to my hips. I’m not a short person so you can imagine how much snow that was.

I am disappointed that I didn’t get the maple trees marked before the snow flew. I wish I could identify them just by their bark, but I’m not that good. I would love to tap the trees and make maple syrup. I did that once and enjoyed it very much. First I’ll invest in a good pair of snowshoes.

Did you know that maple syrup is considered a healthy sweetener?  Good news for my sweet tooth.  Real maple syrup contains over 54 antioxidants. One-quarter cup of maple syrup contains more than 100% of the RDA of manganese, 54 mg of calcium, and 80 mg of Omega-6 fatty acids, to name a few.  That being said, maple syrup is definitely a healthy addition to the diet. As with everything remember to exercise moderation.

This gives me an idea. Maybe it’s time to play in the kitchen again. Stay tuned for part 2.
