Maple syrup: Oh, how sweet it is.
When you are out and about Vermont this weekend, stop into a sugarhouse that's participating in Vermont Maple Open House Weekend.
Sugarmakers are found all over the state -- from the Massachusetts line to the Canadian border. They will show you how they make their sticky, sweet jugs and bottles of golden maple syrup. You may also get a free sample, too.

Also keep on the lookout for signs that point you toward participating sugarhouses. Large amounts of steam may also be a tip-off!
I just checked and I better pick up a half gallon to get me through this year. Yum.
