December 17th National Maple Syrup Day

You know, there are some things that just make me wonder. Native Americans started using maple tree sap by boiling it and making maple syrup. It’s good, most of us like maple syrup, I even know people who love it but that still doesn’t explain how the Native Americans figured out that maple syrup was going to be a good thing. I mean, they somehow tasted the sap, figured out they had to boil it and then use it as a syrup. So that means someone had to say to themselves that the stuff coming out of the maple tree might be good to eat.

How to celebrate – Have some maple syrup. Using maple syrup on different things, like an ice cream topping! Go taste test different trees.
