Ok, I gotta know what a maple dumpling is........
It's a French Canadian desert. You take a pot of maple syrup (has to be real) and boil it. You then pour in bisquit batter (perferably from scratch but Bisquick works allright too). The syrup cooks the batter, and you end up with maple saturated dumplings in concentrated syrup (its sort of like a really thick liquid). You serve it while still hot, best with whip cream or vanilla ice cream. It is incredibly sweet, and very filling. I don't know about leftovers though- none has ever survived the first meal.

Hey wait... don't forget the Fried Dough at The Champlain Valley Fair!

How's about the Chilles Rellenos at Penny Cluse?

Fresh corn on the cob from the farmers market.

Vt Morning hot breakfast cereal.

Vt Coffee Company coffee - or Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Harvard Blend...

Vt Velvet Cheese Cake! (Do they still make that? I'm gonna have to check...)

Or how about the world famous prize winning cheeses Vermonters (both 2 and 4 footed) make with increasing success.

Snow Farms Winery SEYVAL, which is pretty much the only white wine I'd drink more than a swallow of...

And Monument Farms Full Fat Chocolate milk which I occasionally see in a corner store in half pints that (even though I can ordinarily take or leave chocolate, and rarely drink milk) will bring strong men to thier knees, and make women swoon...

Actually, Cold Hollow Cider may be my favorite VT food. And it's certainly my favorite food to watch being made. Come to think of it, ANY fresh VT apple cider is good. And then there are all the cider jellies, cider jams, cider mustards, etc...I'm drooling...sorry...

The cheddar, of course. Particularly love the Grafton Village 1 year old. And all of the maple products, and Ben and Jerry's, and Woodchuck cider...all of my favorite foods for years before I was even within 1500 miles of VT, you can imagine how impressed and excited I was when I got there. And outside of Brattleboro, on Upper Dummerston Rd, I believe, a candy place who's name I don't recall, makes the best chocolates ever! I brought home lots of syrup on my last trip so that I could try sugar on snow in the winter...now THAT is really something!!! I'd give up my Nebraska beef any day for some vermont cheese and maple syrup!

Dill pickle? Really? So does one have to be pregnant to enjoy this sweet and sour treat?

The sour is to give the mouth a break from the almost sickeningly sweet thickened syrup. Back when I went to school and the kids were treated to field trips to the sugarhouses in the spring, it wasn't uncommon to have a few of them throwing up because of the intense blast of sugar, wet heat from the evaporator pan, and bumpy bus ride. I doubt many 8 year olds were pregnant, although some might have been pre-diabetic.

Thumbs up Great eating in Brattleboro

I'm from the Brattleboro area. Here are my very favorite places to eat in Brattleboro-
The New England House
Anon's Thai Food (fried yams, chicken sticks, and veggie curry pies are the best. Anon's comes to the Farmer's Market in Brattleboro on Sat. and Wed. from Mermorial Day to October.) They also have a restaurant on Fairground Rd. off exit 1 on Interstate 91.
Amy's Bakery is the best bakery located in downtown
Backside Cafe (breakfast all day, strawberry pancakes are my favorite)
Marina (sometimes slow but great food)
The Brattleboro food coop has a huge selection of food in their deli and is very good.
For formal dining, Peter Havens is by far the best. Located on Elliot St. You should call for reservations.
