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. The first part of the workshop will include a leisurely walk around the farmstead to show how sap is harvested and collected. The tour will wrap up at our sugar shack so you can see (and smell!) the transformation of sap to syrup. You’ll gather in the farm kitchen for the second part of the workshop, where chef Carolyn Grieco will teach how to make some of the most delectable maple syrup recipes. Workshop ends with a generous sampling of all our delicious maple dishes!
Dishes may include recipes such as:
- Maple & Mustard Crusted Chicken,
- Spring Salad with Maple-Balsamic Dressing,
- Salted Maple Caramel Sauce over Ice Cream
