Nature’s Goodness

Over 4 gallons of maple syrup put up for our consumption during the coming year.  Pancakes, waffles, warmed over ice cream, in smoothies, homemade pop, drizzled over yogurt or by the spoonful.

For my foodie friends that use cheesecloth right steady and are tired of buying it.  I recently discovered this washable filter material at the natural food store. It washes up easily and it is heat tolerant too.  It cost about $2.50 and I’ve already used it many times…for broth, syrup, and cheese making.  I wish I knew about this stuff long ago but I’m happy to have discovered it!

Jeb, our pesky pup.  He went out on his first hike last night with me a CB.  He walked 2.75 miles of our 3 mile hike. He’s definitely a keeper!

Great puppy! Ours is about 1 1/2 yrs and a delight. Have a great Easter weekend. We still have snow but dream that spring is just around the next corner.

We make syrup, too. You can see pictures of my boys collecting sap in my blog. And your pup looks just like my dad's dog! :)

Your syrup looks great! My family and I make a little ourselves. Was wondering if you could tell me about that material you are using to strain it with. Thanks.

Anonymous, next time I go to the store I purchased it at i will look and see what it is made of. Is that what you are looking for?

Hey Country Gal, Thought I'd sign my name this time, anonymous just doesn't sound right. What ever info you could give me on that material would be great. What it's made of, the manufacture, what ever is on the label. Thanks again.
