The official start to spring was last week. But the weather hasn’t felt at all spring-like. And those anticipating the sweet taste of spring will have to wait.
If you’re getting tired of waiting for spring, so are the people who tap maple syrup. The syrup season is getting a late start this year, by about a few weeks in some parts of Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
From a food perspective, these months mean the beginning of maple syrup season.
It’s starting to be warm enough to feel like spring will soon be here. And nature has its way of telling us a new season is about to begin too.
Canadians and Vermonters can brag all they want, but here in Minnesota, there are people making high-quality maple syrup, right from Minnesota trees.
