It’s Time for Maple Weekend



By Deb Everts

If all things maple are your thing, these next two weekends plan to be the “sweetest” of the year. About 150 maple producers from around the state — including a handful in our neck of the woods — will host open houses as part of the 23rd annual Maple Weekend on March 17 and 18 and March 24 and 25. “We enjoy doing the Maple Weekend — it’s nice to see people come back back year after year, and to also see new faces,” said Paul Lesefske, who along with his brother, Dana, operate Maple Glen Sugar House in Gowanda. “Everybody has a little something different to offer, and it’s a great time for families to get out and go to the different places.” The New York State Maple Producers Association, which organizes the weekends, claims Maple Weekend is “agri-tourism at it’s best — come right down to the farm to see the process, smell the delicious smell of maple sap cooking down to syrup and taste many of the maple products made right there on the farm.” Participating farms are expected to be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each of the four days. The following participating maple producers in the Ellicottville area are

Tickets are available at Anything Printed, S&S Taxidermy or from any Cordelian Club member. Now on to the parades. Buffalo has been consistently rated one of the best cities in the Country for our St. Patrick's Day celebrations. If you haven't experienced a St. Patrick's Day parade in Buffalo, you are missing out. Make sure to put this on your bucket list at least once and you'll see why. On Saturday, March 17, 25th Annual "Old Ward" St. Patrick's Day Parade starts at Noon from the Valley Community Center. The Old Ward parade is known to many as the "real" Irish parade in town since the Old Ward neighborhood is where many of WNY's Irish immigrants settled with their families, who still live in the area today. The parade includes over 100 marching units (bands, floats, social clubs, dancers, family clans, fire and police departments) that meander through the streets including South Park Avenue, Smith Street, Elk Street, Hamburg Street and South Street. Following the parade join everyone, and we mean everyone, at the Valley Community Center, located at 93 Leddy Street, Buffalo

for the traditional grand Irish “Hooley” featuring live music by “Emerald Isle” along with traditional Irish food and drink. Or make some time to grab a bite at one of the many local pubs in the neighborhood, including Gene McCarthy’s, Adolf’s, Blackthorn, Conlon’s & Doc Sullivan’s. For more information visit the Valley Community Center website at www. On Sunday, March 18 the 78th Annual Buffalo Saint Patrick’s Day Parade kicks off at Niagara Square in front of City Hall at 2:00 p.m. and travels up Delaware Avenue all the way to North Street. If you plan on attending this parade you need to get your spot early and be prepared to wait out in the cold for the parade route to go by! It's a long one. But worth the wait. For more information visit www. buffalostpatricksdayparade. com. For those not willing to brave the long lines or chilly weather, or those who just love good Irish food and Music, you can stop at the Buffalo Irish Center, located at 245 Abbott Road. They'll be serving up a breakfast at 10 a.m. (bangers and mash and black pudding) and open for admission to the St. Patrick's Celebration starting at Noon featuring the band the LeftOvers and Irish dance performances by Clann Na Cara and Rince na Tiarna.

It’s the official state tree for a reason: the Sugar Maple thrives in New York, one of very few places in the world where these trees can grow. The Native Americans were the first ones to discover this sweet resource and taught early settlers how to tap Sugar Maple trees for their sap. Today, New York has the largest population of tap-able maple trees in the country and more than 2,000 maple sugar-makers statewide. You can experience this fascinating and delicious industry yourself during New York’s two Maple Weekend events taking place this weekend, March 1718, and next weekend, March 24 and 25. Take a tour and sample some sweet treats at one of the many local sugar houses, and enjoy making these sweet treats with your fresh supply of local maple syrup! Treat your family, friends or coworkers to a delicious treat: maple cookies! Craig Gund’s recipe showcases that rich, golden maple flavor in a simple recipe that can easily be doubled. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease cookie sheets with vegetable oil or cooking spray. In a large bowl, cream 1 cup of softened butter and 1 cup of packed brown sugar. Add 1 egg, 1 cup of real maple syrup and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract; mix well. In a separate bowl, sift together 4 cups of allpurpose flour, ½ teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of

baking soda. Stir into the syrup mixture until well blended. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and flatten slightly. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes and let cool on a wire rack. Drizzle with a tasty glaze, if you like. Mix together 1 cup of powdered sugar, a few drops of maple extract (to taste) and a tablespoon of milk or more,

to reach desired consistency. Drizzle the glaze on the cooled cookies and enjoy (makes about 5 dozen cookies). Easter is just two weeks away! Be sure to get some maple syrup this weekend to make your Maple-Peach Glazed ham for Easter dinner. This glaze recipe will cover a 7 to 9 pound cooked ham. Cover and bake your ham in a 325 degree oven in a shallow roasting pan. In a small saucepan, mix 2 cups of peach preserves or orange marmalade, ½ cup of real maple syrup, 1/3 cup of orange juice and, for an optional kick, 2 tablespoons of ground ancho chili pepper until well blended. Remove

¾ cup of the mixture for the glaze. After the ham has been cooking for about 2 hours, remove it from the oven and brush with some of the glaze. Bake, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes longer, brushing occasionally with the remaining glaze. Bring the remaining preserve mixture in the saucepan to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve as a sauce with the ham. Just like Laura in Little House on the Prairie, you too can have fun making maple syrup snow candy right in your own backyard! Also known as snow taffy, this treat is easy and fun, but does require some adult supervision, as it involves the stove! To get started, find an area of clean snow outside and pack down this area so that it is firm enough to hold the hot syrup. Next, heat 1 cup of 100% pure maple syrup in a small pot until boiling. Once it is boiling, the syrup will start to bubble; keep boiling and check with a candy thermometer until it reaches the “soft ball” stage (235 to 240 degrees). Remove the pot from the heat and head outside! Pour the syrup in lines on the snow. Press a popsicle stick into the syrup and as the syrup is cooling, roll it around the stick to make maple syrup candy pops! You can also pour small puddles of syrup on the snow to make individual pieces of this delicious candy.

Health & Fitness: Delayed

Onset Muscle Soreness

By Kim Duke NETA & AAFA Certified Trainer

We all know that daily exercise is invaluable to keeping our bodies strong and functional. The old saying, “If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it,” well, turns out that saying is completely true. You may not feel this way in your youth but as you age, the less you do physically, will play a detrimental role in how you age. This being said, starting an exercise program can be challenging. Making the time to exercise, creating a balanced routine, and setting goals are hard enough, but add to that the muscle soreness that comes with adapting to that regimen, and it may be difficult to stay on track. After participating in some kind of strenuous physical activity, particularly something new

to your body, it is common to experience muscle soreness, say experts. “Muscles go through quite a bit of physical stress when we exercise,” says Rick Sharp, professor of exercise physiology at Iowa State University in Ames. “Mild soreness just a natural outcome of any kind of physical activity. And they’re most prevalent in beginning stages of a program.” Exercise physiologists refer to the gradually increasing discomfort that occurs between 24 and 48 hours after activity as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), and it is perfectly normal. “Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is a common result of physical activity that stresses the muscle tissue beyond what it is accustomed to,” says David O. Draper, professor and director of the graduate program in sports medicine/athletic training at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. No one is immune to muscle soreness. Exercise fanatics and body builders alike experience delayed onset muscle soreness. But for the deconditioned person starting out, this can be intimidating. So what can you do to alleviate the pain?

“Exercise physiologists and athletic trainers have not yet discovered a panacea for DOMS,” says Draper. “However, several remedies such as ice, rest, anti-inflammatory meds, massages, and stretching after your workout have been reported as helpful in the process of recovery. “People don’t stretch enough,” he continues. “Stretching helps break the cycle,” which goes from soreness to muscle spasm to contraction and tightness. However, with the appropriate rest and repair time, your muscles will adapt to the increased load and lead to improved strength and fitness. Plus, just as your muscles adjust and get stronger with each workout, your body’s ability to modulate soreness/inflammation within appropriate levels also gets better. This means you can work out harder overtime and recover faster. Your goal should always be to train hard enough to stimulate gains in your fitness level and then to back off and let your body adapt to the gains. Remember— Where there is no struggle, there is no strength. You will NEVER REGRET WORKING HARD!

In honor of our good friend Bob McCarthy, The Rotary Club of Ellicottville, donated $250 to the Ellicottville Historical Society. Bob would always make sure that a portion of the funds raised by Rotary went to the Ellicottville Historical Society. Jim Salamone commented that the Rotary will continue with Bob’s tradition of supporting this great group as we feel it is an integral part of our community. The Ellicottville Historical Society & Museum started in September of 1956 and was formed for the purpose of studying & preserving

the historical record of the Ellicottville and vicinities. The Historical Society holds meetings every second Wednesday evening from May through October on various historical topics.

“Now That You Mention It” by Kristan Higgins

One step forward. Two steps back. The Tufts scholarship that put Nora Stuart on the path to becoming a Boston medical specialist was a step forward. Being hit by a car and then overhearing her boyfriend hit on another doctor when she thought she was dying? Two major steps back. Injured in more ways than one, Nora feels her carefully built life cracking at the edges. There’s only one place to land: home. But the tiny Maine community she left fifteen years ago doesn’t necessarily want her. At every turn, someone holds the prodigal daughter of Scupper Island responsible for small-town drama and big-time disappointments. But as some relationships crumble around her, others unexpectedly strengthen. This book is currently available in book format only at the Ellicottville Memorial Library. Don’t forget, you can access over 15,300 eBooks and eAudiobooks using your library card!
