16 th Annual New York Maple Weekend March 19-20,26-27

North Fork Bed and Breakfast is conveniently located near many local maple producers here in St. Lawrence County. If you are interested in finding out more information you can always check out http://www.mapleweekend.com/

Sweeter Creations in Madrid,NY and the Orebed Sugar Shack in DeKalb Junction,NY are both near our B&B. You can visit http://www.orebedmaplesugarshack.com/ to see what is available and get more information about these 3rd generation maple producers. They have lots of recipes that use maple products. The maple scones and maple sugar cookies we make here at North Fork B&B use granulated maple sugar which you can purchase as well.

Maple syrup is great on pancakes and waffles but it is also a wonderful addition to many main meals and great fun to use in baking. If you've never tried using granulated maple sugar in baking, you owe it to yourself to get some and try it. It's delicious!

Take a trip to the Orebedmaplesugarshack and see how maple syrup,maple cream, maple candy and maple granulated sugar is made. They have a heated sugar house too so you won't need to worry about staying toasty while you experience all that maple weekend has to offer. Be sure to ask for recipes too so you'll have some new things to try when you get home.
