Have you ever heard of Apple Cider Molasses?  This all natural sweetener is made from 100% pure, fresh apple cider and it is made right here at Allens Hill Farm in Bloomfield, NY. If you are looking for an ingredient that will give a completely new taste to some of your tried and true recipes, this is it! With its unique flavor, substituting a small portion of your normal sweetener with apple cider molasses can have a profound impact on the flavor and texture of any dish.

Apple Cider Molasses™ was first used on the American frontier. Sugar was almost impossible to come by, and if available, prohibitively expensive. Resourceful frontier cooks used what was available to produce an alternative from products which were plentiful. Sweet cider was transformed into a sugar substitute for use in all kinds of cooking and baking. Watch Apple Cider Molasses being made~ Watch the Video

The temperatures are rising and the sap is flowing in the Finger Lakes.  March is Maple Sugar month in New York.  Did you know that New York is the third largest maple sugar producer worldwide and the second largest producer of maple sugar in the United States?  There’s nothing that tastes any better than warm, home-made maple syrup over pancakes for breakfast. You can enjoy this too.  Maple Sugar Weekend is coming on the weekends of March 21 &  22, and March 27 & 28 with plenty of fun activities planned.  You’ll see demonstrations of collecting and boiling the sap, the production of the final maple sugar products and of course be able to taste too!
