The Purple Moose books are written with the help of Mrs. Kristen Steele. Purple Moose entered her life after meeting him in the gift shop of the Water Wheel Breakfast and Gift House in Jefferson, New Hampshire in 2005. He was the perfect NH memento to take back to Ohio to share with her kindergarten class, where the school color was purple! Purple Moose’s airplane trip back to Ohio turned into Purple Moose’s first adventure book! He became the class mascot and loved creating stories with his many classmates. Mrs. Steele taught kindergarten and special education in the public schools systems of Virginia, Ohio, and New Hampshire for over 27 years. After returning to her native NH, she began working on publishing and writing the Purple Moose stories that her former students loved and inspired. Mrs. Steele is a big believer that children learn through play. It is her goal to live with enthusiasm and share her love of learning, the arts and the world with children.

A young mapler will join the Proulx family during Maple Weekend, March 23-24.
At the age of nine, Ethan Lemay has already learned something that most people don’t know, the effort that is put into producing maple syrup. Ethan has been maple sugaring with his dad now for 5 years and recently has decided to venture off own on his own. With the help of his parents, he has made hats, logos and even his own barrel stove evaporator that he and his dad made. The first and last boil of the season are on the barrel stove and when he’s not boiling, he’s out helping run his and his dad’s 300 bucket hobby operation. From collecting and boiling sap to filtering and bottling syrup Ethan has had a hand in every aspect of the operation and has quickly learned that with hard work and dedication comes sweet success!

The maple bubbles as Just Maple owner Barbara Proulx keeps a watchful eye on the latest batch. The kitchen is filled with a delicious smell. It’s a process that is part science, part alchemy and a little magic: making pure maple candy. Every piece of Just Maple maple candy is made right here in our commercial kitchen. The work requires a lot of focused attention and is painstaking – making creamy, high quality, maple candy is a three day process.
On day two, the maple candy is placed in stainless steel baskets and dipped into pure maple syrup. Nicknamed “dipping sauce”, this maple syrup has to be prepared carefully so it is right at the proper density before candy is dipped. This part of the process creates a nice creamy texture that holds up well. The candy will have a little firmness on the outside to contrast the smooth texture on the inside; a real “melt in your mouth” experience! After dipping, the maple candy is drained and hand-dried piece by piece. Then it goes back on the racks for final drying for another 24 hours.
Maple candy from Just Maple stores extremely well – just keep it a room temperature. It should be noted that if it is in a warm, humid environment too long, its consistency can change – it may become harder. If that happens, it can still be eaten, used as sweetener or in cooking. Most likely, you won’t encounter this… Maple candy has a way of getting eaten up!
