Back in the day, Grandpa Hawkins magically transformed maple sap into a sweet, creamy, delicious spread his family affectionately called “Grandpa's Stuff.” He used only a bowl, wooden ladle and Pure Vermont maple syrup which he boiled himself.

The only ingredient is pure Vermont maple syrup, freshly tapped and boiled locally in Vermont.
