My sister took me to the maple syrup festival in her town today and they were giving out free hot chocolate which was perfect bc it was windy and chilly 🙊🍁
Plus mostly everything was locally made and all natural too so I bought a dry shampoo, an essential oil blend and a huge slab of maple fudge plus I tried my first churro which was delicious and treated my sister to one as well 😁
I even found some pretty crystals too! ✨

Appalachia has a long history of sugar making. The Cherokees threw hot rocks into hollowed-out logs that were filled with sap. The early colonial settlers, too, quickly learned to make the sweet stuff: even though census enumerators were inconsistent in reporting maple sugar production, the 1790 output is reported for 26 Appalachian counties of southwest Virginia, West Virginia, eastern Kentucky, and eastern Tennessee.
