FROM MANGOS TO MARINARA TO MAPLE, IT’S DELICIOUS MARCH MOUNTAIN MADNESS IN MT WASHINGTON VALLEY, NH
North Conway, NH – As we finish February, dubbed one of the sweetest months in Mt Washington Valley, all taste buds turn to March for the next chapter in gastronomic getaways. From pasta dinners to New England’s sweet Maple Madness, March in the White Mountains of New Hampshire is one “sappy” month for those who love a good culinary caper. Here’s the (ice cream) scoop on all the deliciousness in store.
Throughout March: Visit the Sugar Shack & pick up “Tap Your Own” kits at 100 Acre Wood: If there is steam rolling out of the Sugar Shack, you are welcome to step inside for a firsthand look of the historic and innovative process of turning sap into maple syrup. Stop in and taste a sample. Believe in Books will have "Tap Your Own" kits available, buckets to borrow, spiles and drill bits to purchase. They provide the supplies - you provide the trees! Kits will be available in our 100-Acre Wood Sugar Shack on the weekends and at Believe in Books office during the week. After you've collected your sap, you can bring it back to the Sugar Shack and trade it for maple syrup! Info: http://www.believeinbooks.org/maple-sugaring.html .
