Maple Month Recipes

Maple sugaring season is one of the sweetest times of the year in New Hampshire. The season usually starts in late February, when the days start to get longer, and the sap starts running in maple trees. The season is in full swing in March, also known as Maple Month, a time when sugarhouses around the state celebrate everything maple. There is nothing quite like stepping inside a local sugar shack where the sweet smell of boiling sap fills the air. We’ve rounded up a few recipes that pay homage to maple syrup. So grab some of this sweet seasonal treat and try them out for yourself!
