All things human

We folks up in Ontario have had a very cold February – well cold for Ontario anyway…but it is a beautiful day today and when the sap starts to run it surely means Spring is close!

 

Start with an idea:

Maple Syrup

 

 

Make this:

waffle homemade

 

Turns into this:

 

 

Homemade Waffle

 

 

Add this:

 

 

Home made Waffle and Fruit

 

 

Then of course this:

 

Waffle and fruit

 

 

And YES…I can still taste the wonderful Ontario Maple Syrup!!!

 

What a beautiful way to anticipate the coming of Spring 2015!!

  8. My husband makes maple syrup here in Ohio. The sap just started running again, after a brief run a month ago. It’s gonna be a short one this year. We’re just hoping to get enough to provide for the family this time.

    OMGoodness, I want some of that. One for now and a few dozen for the freezer. I’ve had the real maple syrup and guarded it with my life, but it still ran out, eventually. Now I’m back to our native sorghum molasses, another rare species around here.

    • Oh I haven’t had that type of molasses before…yes…I love maple syrup. Even better when you boil it down yourself. It takes 40 litres of sap to make 1 litre of syrup – so it is like liquid gold.

        That’s about the same as molasses. It takes several stacks of sorghum cane juice to make small amounts of molasses. It all comes from the sorghum cane juice, boiled down like maple sap, so when home made, it tastes like gold. Hard to find lately though. Not many people grow the cane or have the equipment to squeeze the juice out now.

  10. I like your line: “Turns into this”
    I know what I would turn into if I ate all that. 😦
    But it looks so beautiful and delicious. 🙂
