Join me on Saturday, November 14 at 1:00 p.m. at Byrd's Books in Bethel, CT for conversation and a book signing. Maple Sugaring: Keeping It Real In New England explores the mysteries and mystique of maple sugaring and introduces the dedicated, sometimes quirky people who make it. Find out how this unique and ancient northeastern North American product was discovered and the high tech techniques it takes to produce it today. Are sugar makers the canary in the coal mine for climate change? Why do some people think maple syrup is the next miracle food? Learn how you can make and enjoy your own syrup. Go beyond pancakes and discover maple syrup in a variety of recipes. Since I'm a former sugarmaker and board member of the Connecticut Maple Syrup Producers Association you'll get an insiders view. Don't miss the sweetest event of the year!
