Who can resist the smell of boiling sap? Take the afternoon off and breathe deeply at one of the 60 sugar houses across New Hampshire that will be open during Maple Weekend, March 24 – 25, 2012. Bring the kids and learn how maple syrup is made, enjoy free samples and pick up a gallon to savor during pancake breakfasts or baked bean suppers. There are two maple producers close by in Orford, NH – Sunday Mountain Maple Farm & Mt. Cube Sugar House. Each has a full array of maple products from maple candy to various sizes of maple syrup. And if there is snow on the ground a real treat is hot maple syrup on snow! Stay at Breakfast on the Connecticut, enjoy a full country breakfast complete with New Hampshire’s amber gold.
