Take a look through these archives or grab a copy of my cookbook, Maple: 100 Sweet and Savory Recipes Featuring Pure Maple Syrup.

I have tips to share on how to substitute maple syrup or granulated maple sugar for refined sweeteners.  Learn how maple syrup is made and what it was like to write a cookbook. Plus some of the best maple syrup-spiked chili, carrot cake and apple crisp you have ever had.

We Make Our Own Maple Syrup

My family makes craft-made small-batch pure Vermont maple syrup every spring. Over time we have gone from collecting from only 5 trees in a season to today collecting from 100.
We use carbon-neutral wood to fire our evaporator and we do not use reverse osmosis technology. We are committed to preserving the natural ecosystems in our environment, and believe that stewardship of the sugar bush is the most important part of sugar making.
You can purchase our syrup online and read more about our maple sugaring operation on Little Hill Maple.
