We have tapped the silver maple tree in our backyard for the last three or four years now. Each year we learn a bit more about the process of making syrup. The 2019 tapping season exceeded all of our expectations, leaving us with more syrup then we’d use in an entire year. That’s why when I connected with Michelle Visser on Instagram, and learned about her recently released book Sweet Maple, I was eager to get my hands on it to see which delicious recipes she included. To my surprise, this book is so much more than just recipes, this book is your complete resource for everything maple-tapping. It’s filled with detailed directions and helpful tips. And lots of personal details about her family, farmhouse and acreage, which are endearing and enjoyable to read about.
Other delicious recipes I can’t wait to try:
- Maple-Infused Butter
- Maple Cream (I have tried before, and failed miserably – so I hope this recipe teaches me the proper way because it sounds heavenly!)
- Jill’s Maple BBQ Sauce
- Maple Popcorn
- Maple Cinnamon Rolls
What fun, Stephanie! Makes me wonder if we could tap our maple trees!
