When S & I lived in southern Maine, Thurston and Peters Sugar House was one of our favorite maple syrup providers. Located in West Newfield, they have been carrying out their families traditional maple making ways since 2007. They offer a video on their website - about 10 minutes long - explaining the history of their land and the maple making process. For a direct link to the video Click HERE.
We also lived in northern Maine for a while; Woodville, Maine - population 307. Nowhere else is "Yankee Ingenuity" at it's finest! You should see what they can lend from a roll of duct tape....and maple syrup? Pffsshh! Why stop at that? You haven't lived until you've had Woodville Birch Syrup. OFY!! (Oh Heck Yeah!!).
As I long for
Now I know what your thinking: Isn't that a LOT of syrup in that glass of milk?
Perhaps, yes...but I'm using this batch in my tea & coffee, so a little will go a long way. If you wan to make maple milk to drink straight up, just add maple syrup - one teaspoon at a time - until you reach the level of sweetness that works for you. If you want to have the sugary-jump-around-like-Daffy-Duck affects, then by all means, make a maple milk bomb (a shot of syrup in each glass!!).
All kidding aside, this is a fantastic alternative to chocolate milk - a more natural alternative. Maple syrup is loaded in nutrients & minerals...just make sure to read the label to ensure you are getting 100% pure maple syrup. Buy local if possible, support your local
sugarbush-ers, maple farmers, syrup peeps!

For each glass of milk, add syrup 1 tsp at a time - stir well- until desired sweetness is achieved.
