Sugaring Season in Massachusetts is in full swing! Storrowton Village Museum celebrates all things maple with our Maple Harvest Day, held every March. The Gilbert Farmhouse turns into a sugarhouse for the day, hearth cooking demos feature maple recipes and the West Springfield Lions Club hosts a pancake breakfast to benefit our educational programs.
Love maple, too? Make some Maple Rice Snow, a recipe that dates back to 1878 and featured in our Maple Harvest Sampler cookbook.
2 cups maple syrup
1 cup whipped cream
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp grated nutmeg
4 cups cooked rice
Instructions: Put syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add cornstarch. When mixture thickens, let cool. Combine mixture with cooked rice and beat well. Put in a glass dish and chill. Top with whipped cream and grate nutmeg on top. For a creamier texture, use short-grained rice.
