Worth a Thousand Words: Maple Sugaring

Maple Sugaring, Currier and Ives
Today's quote about Thomas Jefferson's reasons for switching to maple sugar brought to mind my one of my favorite bits of Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. That sent me looking for "sugaring off" images. Just think how long ago it was that making maple sugar was a regular household activity. And in what a small part of the country. Yet "sugaring off" remains part of the American vocabulary. Or of my vocabulary at least.
