It’s the sweetest Sunday of the year. This Sunday, March 27, 2011, is Maine Maple Sunday, when sugarhouses throughout Maine (see map) will open their doors for tastings, demonstrations, and tours. Consider it a rite of spring.
This is a delicious opportunity and an especially family friendly event. Learn about the process for making maple syrup from tap to table. Even better, taste the sweet goodness, perhaps on ice cream or pancakes or as cotton candy or other creative uses. Some farms will offer sugarbush tours and wagon rides. Check the website for a listing of participating sites, by county, with details on offerings at each.
