A serendipitous recipe for dessert! :)- J.
OK, Nan, I have to ask. How do you know they have a slight maple taste???? LOLI just had this picture of you sticking your tongue out to have a little sample!
It's a shame you lost the branch but this is like making lemonade when you get lemons. Nice post and pictures.
For goodness sakes. I wouldn't have thought of tasting the icicles. What an unusual treat. I can see that mud season has commenced.
Very interesting in deed! My cousin, Mary has tapped her maples a few weeks ago and she said the sap is just flowing!
Hi Nan: Oh how lovely, maple syrup icicles. You should patent them, I'll bet they would be a great hit.
Fantastic! Great pictures.
Niki, it is tasty!Jeff, yup!Kay, I broke it off first!Barbara, what a great way to put it. Wonderful!Lisa, it was Tom's brilliant notion!Sherri, yes, it seems to be a good season after an old-fashioned winter.Donna, in the freezer section of your supermarket!Jill, it does delight me!
Years ago my husband's uncle who lives in Northern Michigan sent us several quarts of Maple syrup.So good.......
Ernestine, it is wonderful stuff! I wrote a little bit about it here:http://lettersfromahillfarm.blogspot.com/2007/04/tools-of-tradewaffles.html
Oh my goodness, bring out the plate of pancakes.
Cool! Very pretty picture, too.Snow has returned to my little town this morning.
Diane, it was such a sweet surprise tasting those icicles.Les, ah March!
A great season for sugaring. Maple-flavoured icicles, what fun!
I have to assume you don't normally go around tasting all icicles. You must have had a suspicion this would have that good maple flavor. Very clever of you.
maple flavored icicles - wow!
Margot, it was Tom's thought that it might taste like maple!Susan, yeah, they are pretty great!
Margaret, hasn't it been a good season!
Fabulous pics - I want to try one of your icicles!
Sallie, it was a sweet surprise!Marty, I could put it in the mail. :<) You COULD try sugar on snow, if you have any left, that is.
This is just so "cool."
I am changing how I post your much appreciated comments. Since I began the blog, I've waited to post them until I had the opportunity to respond.

Please do come back because I will answer all your notes to me.Also, you may comment on any posts, no matter how old, and I will receive notice.
