Gnocchi is a simple pleasure, so long as you aren't making a homemade version. If you aren't familiar, gnocchi are noodles, or dumplings, made from potatoes and flour. Homemade gnocchi has a subtle flavor from ingredients that can include Parmesan, and I once had a recipe with a hint of nutmeg. Illustration adapted from 'Gnocchi with ricotta' by Paoletta S.

Maple sap was once such a huge part of life in this region. Maple sugar was a vital part of one's supplies necessary for baking, possibly brewing and anything we use sugar for today, so the season was very important for local families. I suspect it was a product that brought a great deal of joy to most households.
