Susan's Sugar House Secrets

maple01.jpgEven Chaucer knew that when spring arrives, the sweet winds blow, and sap begins to run. Of course Chaucer was talking about young men’s carnal desires, not the syrup that falls from maple trees into metal buckets in New England.

Yankees are conditioned to lick their lips as the snow melts. Sure we can get maple syrup in a bottle or a can any time of year, but like apples in the fall and corn in the summer – we love our seasonal foods best in season.

We first met author Susan Chapman Melanson when she publisher slightly-fictionalized 1969 memories of life at Wentworth by the Sea hotel. Turns out, she is a syrup farmer by trade. A prolific author and promoter of her own books, Melanson is the very spirit of modern independent publishing. Her page on the popular Lulu.com is evidence with nearly a dozen titles in recent years. As the owner of her own sugar house, it was only a matter of time before the author shared her expertise with the world. -- JDR
