Cecile suggested we check out Warrup’s Farm in Redding, Connecticut. Yesterday was the first day for collecting sap from the maple trees to make syrup. The farm is certified organic, and one can apply to their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) partnership program.

Candy is just sap boiled to higher temperatures than syrup.
