We traveled to upstate, as in the real upstate NewYork, to Rodman to spend a week on our friends’ maple farm, Spring Hill Maple Farm, during sugaring season. It was great fun for me. I didn’t really do much to help outside other than walk back and forth to the sugar bush to see how full the tanks were. Contributing to the cooking and cleaning up isn’t really work to me and that was what I did when I wasn’t just hanging out. Naturally I had to make something with maple syrup, so I tried a maple scone recipe and it was very tasty.
