Recent Obsessions: 100% Dark Amber, Bitches!

Did you guys know about real, 100% pure maple syrup? What? You did? And you didn't tell me!? Geez...and I thought we were friends.

When I heard on Dr. Oz that the real stuff has all kinds of nutrients and other goodnesses (yes, that's what I said) I decided we could at least give it a try. The problem was that the real stuff is kinda expensive as food items go.

They can't just throw some high fructose corn syrup, maple essence and caramel color together to get it. Oh, no. They've got to tap a tree at the right time of year and then clean out the nature gunk, or some such shit. That takes work, so you have to pay for it.

Well, we finally had the cash and low syrup reserves last week to spring for the real stuff. Let me tell you, if you don't know. That. Is. Some. Awe. FUCKING. SHIT! It was better than any stupid 'pancake syrup' I've ever had. And it wasn't just syrupy. It tasted like there was nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon and other spicy goodness floating around in there. so so so so damn good!

I don't believe I can go back to the fake stuff. No sir.

You gotta come visit me. This stuff practically comes out of the taps in Canuck-ville!

When I was visiting Maine I got to go to "Maine Maple Sunday" which is when the sap is flowing at its peek and you go to the farms to watch them make the syrup and they give you ice cream with hot maple syrup on it and they make maple candy with Maple Syrup and SNOW (jut like I read about in Little House in the Praire) It's Wicked Good!

I know it's Wicked Good! I would like to swim naked in maple syrup and then roll in pancakes and eat my way out.

Tracey, do you think there's a place up there that'll let me do that legally? Because there should be.

Oh my god I made an apple coffeecake over the weekend with a maple-syrupy-type frosting; I wish I had this special stuff for it instead!
