Visit to a Cabane à Sucre

Spring is here and it’s a good time to visit a cabane à sucre (sugar shack). Sugar shacks are family owned operations of maple syrup producers. A bunch of us headed to the Temple Sugar Bush in Lanark, Ontario for brunch and a walk on the property’s nature trail. A typical sugar shack meal includes buttermilk pancakes, sausages and maple baked beans.

Sap is collected by tapping maple trees and having it drip into hanging buckets. It looks like a clear fluid that it’s then boiled into maple syrup. The process is green and environmentally sustainable. The result simply delicious:).
