How to Celebrate National Maple Syrup Day
It’s the Sappiest Day of the Year for our crew up in Island Pond, VT.
Each and every year around this time our crew gets together to celebrate the sweetest day of the year.
Yup – that’s right. It’s National Maple Syrup Day — a day where we celebrate how the trees grow and the sap flows. Where hugging a tree is totally normal and getting a little sappy is A-OK.
And since it is THE DAY where we all should rejoice in the sweet wonderment that is maple syrup, our crew wants you to get in on some of the fun by doing one, some, or ALL of these sweet things to celebrate!
5 Sweet Ways to Celebrate National Maple Syrup Day
1. Have a Hearty Breakfast
It goes without saying that you’re going to want to get your National Maple Syrup Day celebration off to a good start with a hearty breakfast.
Our crew likes to dig into a triple platter of pancakes, waffles, and French toast —yeah, all of it — lovingly topped with the true taste of the forest.
2. Hug a Maple
After you consume your mountain of food, tastefully drenched in pure maple syrup, of course, the next thing you’ll want to do is get outside and head for your nearest forest.
Once in the woods, find a sugar maple and wrap your loving arms around it. Some of us do this on a regular basis; not just on National Maple Syrup Day.
3. Pour Some Out
Hopefully, if you’ve decided to celebrate National Maple Syrup Day then you know the difference between table syrup and pure maple syrup.
So, on this day of all days, do us a favor and pour out some of that pancake syrup that we know is buried in your fridge and replace it with some single-source goodness.
4. Go for a Walk in the Woods
Maple syrup wouldn’t exist if wasn’t for the woods…so do yourself a favor and go for a long walk.
Our crew does about six miles a day when sap season is in full swing. And be sure to take your time and bask in the many tree species and wildlife — we’re really lucky to have the wilderness.
5. Make SupperTime Sweet
The day is done and you’re wiped from a wonderful time in the woods and appreciating all things maple syrup.
The last item on your list of ways to celebrate National Maple Syrup Day should be whipping up something sweet & delicious! We’re talking Maple Glazed Chicken, Maple Salmon, or even Maple Roasted Butternut Squash. Sappy Cooking!
