The spoon bread is pretty good, but clearly only something you make, like, twice a year. A cup of cream? Real maple syrup? Wow. Also, I slightly overcooked it. I was doing the knife test, and stuff kept clinging to it. So I changed the knife test in the recipe from “clean” to “mostly clean.”
I remember reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder books when I was a kid, and being fascinated by the maple candies she made (I think in Little House in the Big Woods) by pouring syrup on snow and letting it harden. I tried that once. With crushed ice and Mrs. Butterworth (or maybe it was Log Cabin). Needless to say, it really didn’t work.
No D&D tonight.
