Weekend Doings

Saturday, wifey and I headed out to Washington County to visit some of our fav places for eats, take-outs to bring back home, and some of the best maple syrup available. A trip like this takes us out to some places that I’ve written about before, out toward Salem which is near the VT border. We stopped at the Battenkill Valley Creamery, on County Route 30 near Salem, for some of their fantastic ice cream for an evening dinner party, and fresh eggs for our Sunday morning breakfast. Next, we headed for Salem and lunch at Steininger’s. This place is our fav go-to place when we feel like a drive out into the country and lunch you typically don’t find in a sleepy town like Salem.

The main drag and only traffic light in Salem


Worth the drive from anywhere, Steininger's

Next, we headed out toward Vermont to get some good maple syrup, at the Mountain Valley Maple Farm, on State Highway 153 in West Rupert VT. Sorry, but I don’t have any pics of their sugar operation. They weren’t boiling sap when I got there because the temps were too cold that day for sap to run. Anyhow, these folks make the best maple syrup, get yourself some.

On the New York/Vermont border. Sign says West Rupert was chartered 1761, truly small town Americana at it's best.


Golden goodness, that was very yummy on my blueberry pancakes that wifey made for us on Sunday morning


Here's the info where you can get yourself some. Click the pic, it enlarges. They ship anywhere.
