We experience something new this past weekend: syrup sopping! Yes, there was a Syrup Sopping Day not far from here and we joined in. How is the syrup made?
Horse power! They walk around in a circle while someone stick sugar cane into the center mechanism. The sugar cane is compressed and a receptacle collects the liquid, which is boiled to make the syrup.
And here's the end product served with a biscuit for sopping. Yum! We had a ball despite the rain.
Tomorrow I leave for Houston - it's Quilt Market time! Peggy and I will be doing a Schoolhouse Presentation - can't wait. Plus we're doing a book signing at the AQS booth. Hope to see you there!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
