Sweet Maple: Backyard Sugarmaking from Tap to Table

Thursday, October 24th, 2019, 6 p.m.

Michelle Visser visits Gibson's Bookstore to present her new book in backyard homesteading, Sweet Maple: Backyard Sugarmaking from Tap to Table.

Did you know that there are nearly two dozen tappable trees across the United States? Chances are you have at least one in your very own backyard. Want to bring more healthy food and sustainability into your life? In Sweet Maple, sugarmaker Michelle Visser and her family guide you through every step of all-natural syrup production--with directions for tapping one tree or dozens. In addition to sugaring techniques, tips from sugar shacks, and fun stories of multi-generational family operations, she shares many of her own family's tried-and-true maple recipes while detailing the life-changing benefits of using maple products in place of refined sugar in the kitchen. Join Michelle on her family's sweet journey, from tap to table.

About the author: Michelle Visser is a homesteader in rural New England. In their two-centuries-old farmhouse and on their 14 rocky, tree-filled acres, her family makes an effort to live life a little more simply by growing some of their own food, raising a few farm animals, and making their own all-natural maple sugar. Michelle has been featured in Whole Foods Magazine, Capper’s Farmer, and Mother Earth News. Her new book, Sweet Maple, is an instructional book on backyard sugarmaking that’s also the story of the family’s connection to the past on their small sugar farm and a cookbook, filled with more than 30 maple-infused recipes. She lives in New Hampshire’s lakes region.
