The Sap is Running!

by Kristin Frey April 05, 2017

The Sap is Running!

Maple syruping time throughout New England has arrived. Syrup enthusiasts from Maine to Connecticut are outdoors tapping their maple trees and allowing the clear tree sap to trickle out of the tree trunks into collection buckets or hoses. After hours of boiling down the winter sap over hot fires, the liquid will be reduced and a thick amber syrup with a taste like no other will remain…maple syrup, one of nature's true and pure bounties. 

Making Buttermilk Pancakes

We all have our favorite ways to enjoy our syrup, but maple syrup on pancakes with golden butter is as Amerrican as apple pie. Churn your own butter and it is even better! 

You can also try making maple butter and spreading that on toast, English muffins or waffles. 

Buttermilk Pancakes with Butter

 

Ingredients for Maple Butter

Ingredients:
1/2 c. butter, at room temperature
3 tsp. maple syrup
2 tsp. crushed pecans, lightly toasted
a pinch of sea salt

Preheat overn to 300 F. Toast crushed pecans for 5 minutes in oven. Watch them closely - they are easy to burn! Once lightly toasted, set pecans aside to cool. Place butter in a mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula or spoon, thoroughly mix maple syrup into butter. Next, mix in toasted pecan bits. Add a dash of sea salt. Be sure to taste it as you add salt.  Once mixed, pack butter into a ramekin or shape into a log using plastic wrap.

I headed into the Designer's Night party at the Red Dot Museum in search of Churncraft. Words can't describe how exciting it was to turn the corner and see our Churncraft butter churn beautifully displayed in the culinary section of the "Living" exhibit. Nestled in between Cuisinart and Breville, our butter churn stood out as one of the most beautiful and unique products there.

There's no better way to kick off summer than a visit to the Nantucket Wine and Food Festival. Last year, Churncraft had our debut at the NWFF. Though we weren't selling yet, we got a chance to teach people about slow-churned butter and introduce them to our modern butter churn.
