Hi there!

It’s nice to meet you, via Nadine, of Making Her MamaNadine and I are “blogging buddies” and homeschool confidants. And we share a similar goal–to encourage other parents, especially homeschool moms who are eagerly looking for exciting ways to delve into nature study with their kids. In fact, I am eager to offer my latest project–for free–to all of Nadine’s readers because I think it might inspire some homeschool families to delve into some amazingly “sweet” hands-on nature experiences this school year!

I’m a newbie homesteader.

A few years ago, my family started on our homestead journey. We started growing our own food, canning our fruits and veggies, raising our own meat, and even milking our own Holstein, named Scout (after the feisty main character in To Kill A Mockingbird, of course).

I knew that fresh milk from our own grass-fed cow is loaded with natural enzymes, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. And I love knowing where our food is coming from.

But I was never a huge fan of maple syrup.

So there we were enjoying all this real, “complete food” on our homestead, but never once thinking about the huge amount of refined sugar we were consuming. Even after my husband tapped a few trees, I still didn’t think much about it. To be honest, I never cared for real maple syrup. At least, not until I tasted it fresh from our own trees, right in our back yard.

Now I can’t get enough. I use it for baking, and I (almost magically) turn it into pure maple sugar to sweeten my morning cup of tea. I love that it’s an all-natural sweetener loaded with antioxidants that support the body’s immune system, it supports heart health, and it has less calories than white sugar!

But, best of all, I know exactly where it comes from–it’s not refined and processed in a factory, but it comes from my own trees right in my own back yard. Talk about farm-to-table and sustainable living!

You don’t have to have a cow.

If you think you’d like to start a journey toward healthier, more natural eating, you don’t have to buy a family cow. Instead, consider making your own all-natural sweetener right in your own back yard.

If you wanna give maple syrup making a try, you’ll want to snag a copy of Sweet Maple when it hits the press this fall. It’s the perfect, full-color, 13-chapter, how-to guide for anyone who wants to try making backyard syrup, but no maple tree tapping is required in order to fall in love with this book. It will include fascinating historical facts, an irresistible chapter of amazing maple-sweet recipes, and full directions for making maple sugar and maple cream, using real maple syrup you can purchase, even if you don’t make your own.

But in the meantime, because Nadine sent you here, I’m offering you this 14-page, full-color introductory e-booklet: Maple Deliciousness, in 8 steps. It’s just a tiny “taste” of Sweet Maple. Okay, I’ll be honest, it’s not much like the book, because I’m amazed at how fabulous this printed book is going to be. (Seriously, I look at the mock ups and think, wait, I wrote this!?) But this e-booklet IS free. You can’t beat free. But it’s only free for the month of August. It will be available for purchase in my online shop starting September first.
