A Florida Cane Boil

florida_gainesville_cane-syrupThe north has maple syrup boils, but in the south what’s boiling is cane syrup. If you’re headed to Florida over Thanksgiving weekend, Road Trips Foodies, be sure to put Florida on your itinerary.

The annual Cane Boil takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. November 30, 2014, at Morningside Nature Center, 3540 East University Avenue, Gainesville, Florida. (Yeah, there’s a Fiddlefest, too, with fiddle, banjo and string-band music.)

Held every year the Saturday after Thanksgiving, this event combines familiar traditions of giving thanks and the fall harvest with the making and bottling of sugar cane syrup, biscuits hot from the wood cookstove, live music and living history interpreters and demonstrators bringing a country day in 1870 to life.

Event admission is $2 for adults, $1 for children ages 3-12: children under three admitted free. It’s all sponsored by the City of Gainesville’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department and the Friends of Nature Parks.
