State of Vermont Pure Maple Syrup - 16oz
Product ID: A2DU001
The production of maple syrup, known as "sugaring", takes place just as winter is losing its grip. The maple producers, or "sugarmakers" look for weather that alternates between freezing and thawing; this is what makes the sap flow. In Vermont, sugaring weather usually starts around the beginning of March, and normally lasts for about six weeks. Before the sugarmakers can produce syrup they must tap their trees and this happens during January and February. Snow may lay deep in the woods at the start of sugaring, but the warm sun on the branches of the maple trees causes the long dormancy of winter to give way and the sugaring season to begin. Use for baked goods, dressings, over pancakes or waffles and glazing meats.
