The Sap Runs Through New Hampshire

It's a sure sign of Spring when the sap runs in New England and the sugarhouses get fired up to produce the best Maple Syrup in the country. Our friend Dave, a true Renaissance Man, invited us to see the new arch in his sugarhouse and give us a brief overview of the process. We think, with no bias, that Dave's is some of the most amazing syrup we've ever had, so we jumped at the chance. Here's what we saw:

Sap buckets outside Dave's sugarhouse in NH

The sugarhouse made from an 18th century Cape

Scoop once used to keep the syrup running in the arch hangs by the door

Both structurally impressive and almost surgically clean, Dave's new arch

Wood for the stoves keep the sap boiling
