With winter 2014 finally loosening its grip, it’s again time for tapping the sugar maples and boiling the sap down to syrup. The Little Stony Point Citizens Association invites one and all to the 23rd Annual Maple Syrup Day at the Caretaker’s House, 3011 Route 9D in Cold Spring. Sunday, March 23, from 9:30 to noon, there will be live music, a roaring fire and free pancakes with genuine Hudson Valley maple syrup, as well as hot coffee and cider.
John Stowell and crew from the Hudson Valley Maple Farm will be on hand to demonstrate the techniques used to get sap from the trees to the evaporator to syrup in bottles. As usual, these bottles of concentrated sweetness will be available for purchase.
