The current Saveur (received late Feb 2011) - on maple syrup making and recipes

I would just like to thank the editors of Saveur for running an article on maple syrup at the right time of year. One of the very first signs of Spring in my southwestern Ontario home was getting the very first of the new crop of syrup and eating it for dessert out of fruit nappies with buttered bread (or over vanilla ice cream). It annoys me when I see maple flavor recipes and menu items as Autumn items.

    I thought this was one of the best issues I've read in recent memory. Enjoyed the articles on cassava, Sicily and maple syrup. I thought they could have gone a little more in depth on Sicily, but I just finished reading "Pomp and Sustenance" and "On Persephone's Island," so I'm biased.

      It really is excellent all in all.

      I agree with you 100% Buttertart! I saw at least two examples of publications featuring maple recipes last fall and it really annoyed me. I look forward to picking up the new Saveur - I love maple!

        It just ain't right! The leaves are falling but the sap isn't running for crying out loud! It's a very good article.

        You know, I had heard the term "sugar shack" before, but I thought it had an entirely different meaning until I read that article.
