Learn about maple syrup and more at the New Haven Museum

 
Connecticut author and maple-sugar devotee David Leff will "bring his infectious enthusiasm for all things maple-y" to a free presentation based on his newest book, “Maple Sugaring: Keeping it Real in New England” at 6 p.m. March 29, at New Haven Museum, according to a release.
 
"A former maple sugarmaker and board member of the Connecticut Maple Syrup Producer’s Association, Leff writes and speaks of the art and science of America’s favorite sweet with a passion that is positively lyrical," the release said.  "While examining everything from the political to the environmental aspects of the topic, Leff will offer a look at real-life maplers, including some in Connecticut, and reveal how the ancient industry that originated with Native Americans persists in the 21st century."
 
During the presentation, Leff  "will share stories of some of the sugarmakers he’s met over the years, sharing their expertise, insights, and anecdotes about their experiences in the business. Noting that it is the process, not the product, which sustains them, Leff points out that for many, sugaring seems to evoke a spirituality entwined with and manifest through physical work. Lucky for us, as it takes 40 gallons of sap to create a single gallon of syrup," the release said.
