Few things are sweeter than a little time spent in a sugar shack. Especially when the sap is running and the boil is on! Add to that a short stack of flapjacks and homemade sausage covered in amber syrup and there you have it…Maine Maple Syrup Season.
It is tradition and it is precious family time as well. Given the sunny day, families were out in droves last Sunday across the state to enjoy the official start of it all during Maine Maple Sunday. They enjoyed breakfast, sometimes al fresco, or even better…in a haze of sweet smoke and steam.
