Backyard Sugarmaking from Tap to Table

£15.95

Book Description

Sweet Maple is an instructional book on backyard sugarmaking that’s also the story of the family’s connection to the past on a small New England sugar farm. Throughout its pages, Michelle gives advice on:

  • The 30 different kinds of trees that can be used to make syrup (at least one of which grows in every state of the nation)
  • Insight into how sugarmakers down south and out west— well outside of the “maple belt”—are making syrup successfully.
  • The process of making syrup, to help you decide what level is right for you
  • How to make alternative treats, such as lilac syrup
  • The health benefits of maple products, which contain more than 40 antioxidants
  • Substituting processed sugar with all-natural maple syrup in any recipe
  • The three steps to making maple sugar
  • How to make irresistible maple cream and how to enjoy it
While learning the art of sugarmaking alongside her husband, Michelle guides readers through every step of all-natural syrup production, with directions for tapping one tree or hundreds, while detailing the life-changing benefits of using maple syrup in the kitchen. Interspersed with sugaring techniques, tips, sidebars, and storytelling, Michelle shares more than 30 of her family’s tried-and-true maple recipes—from scones to salads.
