Maple Sugaring/Chef Demo at IAR Middle School in Farmington

Today I had the distinct pleasure and opportunity to work with the staff and students at IAR Middle School in Farmington CT. 

I cooked Whole Grain Pancakes for the students and served them with Maple Syrup made by the students from Sugar Maples tapped at their school! 

Chartwells Resident Dietitian for Farmington Public Schools Aliza Stern RD spoke about Whole Grains.


Maple Sugar Farmer Kay Carroll from Brookside Farm II in Litchfield spoke to the students about the Maple Syrup production process and explain and tasted the four different grades of Maple Syrup  with the students.
