March is the time for sugaring in New England! Appleton keeps this very special tradition alive by tapping the farms beautiful maple trees and producing wood-fired, small batch syrup. We will begin the workshop by enjoying a leisurely walk around the farmstead to show you how sap is harvest and collected. We will make sure to stop along the way and visit our very own sugar shack.
Warm up in our cozy farm kitchen learning how to make country bread and delicious soups and stews. These hearty recipes will become favorites in your winter collection. A satisfying meal together will be enjoyed by all at the evening’s end!
Jackie King, co-owner of A&J King Artisan Bakers in Salem, will show you the basics of tart production and assembly using three distinct methods. Based on the recipes and techniques outlined in her new book, Baking by Hand, participants will create three tarts from start to finish—to bring home or eat right away! This class is perfect for the aspiring pastry chef, sweet lover, or home cook. Join us for this inspiring workshop, then stop by the Appleton Farms Dairy Store to pick up your own copy of Baking by Hand.
