Description

Delighting in nature's best-loved sweet.

"A fun and fact-filled work guaranteed to delight folks of all ages."
-Library Journal

 

In this richly illustrated book, the authors explore every aspect of maple syrup. They relate Native legends surrounding its discovery and explain its importance in the pioneer diet. They cover the sugar maple's exalted status in the maple tree family, and reveal why maple sap is still one of nature's great mysteries.

Also included are:

  • Details about how sugar maples are tapped and how the sap is collected
  • Insights from producers who reveal their affection for a shared passion
  • A special "maple syrup flavor wheel" that describes the many colors, grades and flavor variations available
  • A selection of recipes, including maple salmon, maple-marinated chicken wings and maple sugar pecans.

A complete and fascinating resource filled with history, romance and sweet flavors, The Maple Syrup Book provides the full story behind a long-standing and important North American tradition.
