Sweet Smoke Sugar Shack

The maples in this part of the world are giving their sap to the sugar shack workers. Melting creek, wagon wheel, boiling sap, inferno, gauges and sugar on snow. We had the blessing of visiting one hard-working family in the Eastern Townships this week: at other times in the year the parents and sons produce vegetables, meat and honey. But in these few days when nights freeze and days are warming, the sap runs.  New syrup has a fresh blooming golden flavour mixed with the smoky maple taste, happening right now. Gratitude to the trees, to the family, and to springtime in Quebec.
