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.

Ribs get a reputation for being chewy and full of tallow. I've already provided a pressure-cooker method (maximum pressure for 30 minutes) that solves both issues, but I recently got curious about other ways to render ribs delicious. Illustration

I'm not suggesting totally turning oneself off to the bigger picture, but I am suggesting that every once in awhile maybe ignorance is not just bliss, but it's also good for our health. Illustration

The skin could actually be left on for certain Chinese or traditional Native American soups. I decided to use it in a Chinese soup, but without the skin mainly because I am afraid nobody but me will eat it if the skin is left on. However, if you've ever eaten fried fish that was merely scaled, this should not be a problem to you. Illustration
