Vermont Inspired Recipes
Not so much a recipe as a mix in idea, Maple Milk is a family tradition with my kids and my sister's families in Vermont. It's comfort food at it's best.
Did I tell you my sister and her family live on a mountain in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. They make the most amazing pure Vermont Maple Syrup. A while back my brother-in-law along with his dad and brother decided to put up a sugar house in the middle of a Vermont winter. If you know Vermont winters you know this is quite the fête. They wanted to get it up in time for maple sugaring season which is early Spring.
They collect the sap from some the most pristine woods full of old sugar maples. The area is so remote it is clean and free from water, soil and air pollutants. They stay up all night when the sap is running feeding the wood fired evaporator stove. The results is gallons and gallons of pure liquid maple gold.
