Squeeters and Maple Syrup
This morning while my roommate and I were puttering around the kitchen, I mentioned how expensive the Grade B maple syrup costs that I like to get. I was using it to sweeten my tea.
So I said, "It makes me wanna go out and harvest my own syrup. Eat it raw. I'm sure that's how the pioneers did it. I'm sure that's how the very first person who ever discovered maple syrup did it."
Then he said "Use a big squeeter in a tree."
I had no idea what a squeeter was so I asked him. (And then of course I googled it to see what they look like.
He told me it's one of those things you stick in an orange so you can get the juice from it. He'd sent for one back in the 60's with a couple quarters in an envelope and then got a torn up envelope back. No quarters and no sqeeters.
