Moving Into Fall
Well, it's late September, which means here in Vermont it's time to cover plants some nights, time to make sure your firewood is well stacked, and time to start thinking about pulling the warm wool clothes out of storage. There is still time to enjoy outside without a bulky snow suit, time for last bonfires and s'mores, time to enjoy a cup of tea outside in the morning (with a blanket), time to play on the deck in the afternoon sun.
The weather is perfect for maple-sweetened banana bread and apple pie, maple bbq sauce on the last fall grillables, and spicy-maple warm lemonade to ward off fall colds.
Lemon juice - 2 T
Maple syrup - 1 T
Candied ginger puree - 1 tsp
Powdered ginger & turmeric - 1/2 tsp each
Sriracha / fire cider / hot sauce of choice to spice it up to your preference
Top it off with hot water - warm your hands and slowly sip
Kick back, open your jug of maple syrup, and enjoy what fall has to offer!
