Thanks Dave for the maple syrup facts. I do put some in granola when I make a batch big enough to last 3 months. And Barb adds some when she makes Irish Oats.

I'll be glad to drive over and get my $480 back from the ferry company.

Glad to hear you are taking a major trip. Are you taking the MH? I might pass you on the ocean floor.

Gene

Gene: Yes, I am taking the Clipper, and I have a new navigator on trial!!!!!!!!!!!
for a 45 to 90 day, familiarization and training course?

Maggie: The Maple syrup is on the bottom and the rest of the concoction floats on that. If you have never tried it, the green pepper and Maple Syrup make a great combination. A little like sweet and sour.

I like maple syrup, but one can limit the amount to individual taste.

A new navigator! Good for you. Hope it works out. There's more to it than reading a map.

I like seeing the health benefits to REAL Maple syrup Dave. Thanks. But I often wonder if during the processing and making the sap into syrup many of these things are lessened or completely eliminated in the heating process. I have some that was provide by a friend that spends some time working with a processing house in Vermont. I'll surely try your concoction one of these days. For my taste the darker the better.

PS: Also curious, what is Beefinabottle ???

This is where the beer belly originates. Those cool ones are not just thirst quenchers, on these hot days.

Dave

Beer: Flying Dog Horn Dog
Calories: At a whopping 314 calories, this beer is equal to eating an enchilada.
Burn By: “Find your favorite mini golf course and hit the links for an hour and fifteen minutes. Not only is it a lot of fun, but all the walking is a good cardiovascular workout,” says Young.

Beer: Sierra Nevada Bigfoot
Calories: This jaw dropping 330 calorie brew is equivalent to a roast beef sandwich.
Burn by: “Break out some nails and a hammer and fix up that loose patio floor for a total of 55 minutes,” suggests Young. “Carpentry is a great way to use all those muscles for a full-body workout.”

Beer: Oskar Blues Gubna Imperial IPA
Calories: Not your average canned beer, this has 310 calories—just about the same as a can of beef chili.
Burn by: “Put down that can and pick up some lotion, it’s time for a massage for your significant other. 60 minutes of upper body exertion does wonders for strength and burns lots of beer calories.”

Beer: Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout
Calories: 320 calories are packed in this brew, equal to a cheeseburger.
Burn by: “Almost an hour of shoveling that snow should do the trick. It will be a great cardio and full body workout.”

Beer: Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA
Calories: A hefty 450 Calories, this choice is like eating a big slice of sausage-topped pizza.
Burn by: “Pull up those leggings and put in your favorite kickboxing video for an hour. It is a helpful calisthenics exercise for the times you just can’t make it out of the house.”

I don't mind!

On a more serious matter, massey is right. This is for Gene and others planning to come to B.C.

The heat, drought, and forest-fire situation here is critical. The FaN was covered with a fine coating of ash this a.m. If anyone has a breathing problem, it's not a good time to visit unless we get some rain (and none is forecast). There is a total campfire ban. Worse, the creeks are running dry and this could devastate the salmon-fishing industry, as the fry need a certain depth of water to survive.

I live fairly close to Conair. Their fleet of water/fire-retardant tankers is cleaned out. The pilots and mechanics are going 24/7, and cannot keep up. Over 140 wildfires in the province at present. Some towns have already been evacuated.

Heart-breaking.....

A maple syrup story

We are travelling northwest on #16 out of Tete Jaune Cache, midday, 9 11 2011, and Heather wants a break to make lunch. As I am letting the Clipper roll down a nice grade, Heather spots a rest stop, down by the river, and insists we pull in there. I brake hard to make the turn into "SMALL RIVER" REST Area, and park in an almost deserted parking lot. One other Class C is there and the couple are sitting at the picnic table watching us pull in.

I am updating my logbook as Heather goes to the door to exit, but she suddenly stops and calls me. ---- "Come quick David! Quick!"

I jump up and come to the door to witness a "STREAKER" jogging down the entrance, and making a circle around the outhouses and jogging back up across the highway, disappearing down an entrance opposite the Rest Area entrance.

We stand there and laugh about what has just happened with the other couple that are visiting from Australia.

"That is the most wildlife I have seen in 3 months of travel" the lady laughs.

As we visit, and watch the road, a car accelerated out from the other side of the road and disappears up the hill, heading east.

"I bet he took a swim in the river and was just air drying himself? I comment.

Now to the Maple Syrup story, We were returning from the farm in Eastern Ontario, and had two large 1 Litre jugs of Canada #1 Maple Syrup. Heather asked these folks from Australia, if they had ever had real maple syrup, and they answered to the negative.

So it was with pleasure, we gifted to our visitors a jug of the best, fresh from Fulton's Sugar Bush, in what is now called Mississippi Mills, Ontario.

The photo is 'Small River Rest Area" and just a capture of a 1 Litre jug of MS.
(Photo date and time is wrong, as Heather's camera needed to be reset.)

FYI "dark" maple syrup is burnt. The extra strong flavour is burnt sugar not maple.

Maple syrup

Yup, the light is considered the higher quality by some but I like the extra strong flavor of the "burnt" darker variety....actually the Amber is my favorite and is not necessarily burnt simply produced later in the season.

The grading of maple syrup is a bit confusing and has recently undergone revision by the US and Canada.

Oh, gosh, just realized my son and I rode motorcycles thorough Kitchener back in about 2008, one of our several trips to Canada.
