Celebrate Spring with the NH Maple Experience

The sap is running!
Spring has sprung here in the North Country, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by enjoying the New Hampshire Maple Experience! We opened the 2012 Maple season at TheRocks Estate on Saturday, and we’ll keep on celebrating for the next three weekends.

That means maple syrup tastings, chef demonstrations, horse-drawn wagon rides, and hands-on learning about maple sugaring.

This weekend we’ll welcome two local chefs to the Maple Experience, and you won’t want to miss what they’re cooking up. On Saturday, Chef Adam Parker from the Indian HeadResort will be here from noon-1p.m. dishing up a divine crumble salad with romaine lettuce, cranberries, blue cheese and walnuts topped with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette. He’ll follow that with Maple-glazed Scallops with a Maple Beurre Blanc over pasta. Yum!

And if you missed Chef Orlo Coots of the Adair Country Inn & Restaurant last weekend, you’re in luck – he’ll be back at The Rocks on Sunday from noon-1 p.m. making his delicious Maple Balsamic Glaze, oh-so-good Whipped Maple Mascarpone, and delectable Walnut Angel Food Chiffon Cake.

Sour pickle face.
As if that’s not enough, the Maple Experience includes a tasting of our own local maple syrup, accompanied by the traditional fresh donut and sour pickle – the perfect blend of sweet and sour! We’re inviting all our Maple visitors to post a photo of their best “sour pickle face” on our Facebook page this season.

To find out more about the Maple Experience and all it includes, please visit the New Hampshire Maple Experience website.

Happy maple sugaring season!
