Giclée Print from the Original Watercolor Painting by Artist, Alicia J. Stonebreaker
Alicia painted and sketched many hours in Vermont after her marriage to the Judge John Connarn of Northfield, Vermont. This sugar shack, painted by Alicia J. Stonebreaker, was owned by one of the Judges’ close friends in Barre, Vermont. The first American Sugar makers were early Native Americans of New England who named their delicious maple syrup, "sinzibukwud," which translated means, "sweet buds." The highest quality syrup is made from the freshest and cleanest sap. If not immediately tended, the sap will deteriorate and the resulting syrup will not withstand the test of a true maple syrup connoisseur. This Vermont Sugar Shack has a large evaporator pan, fired by wood, to heat the sap to the boiling point. Billows of steam escape through a vent or cupola atop the shack, where the aroma travels on the air for all to enjoy. The boil-down process is very labor intensive, continuing for hours upon hours in order to eliminate all water content from the sap.
