Pure Canadian maple syrup comes from a unique natural process which occurs every year in spring. After the cold winter, frozen maple sap thaws and moves back down towards the base of the tree, where it is then tapped and the sap is collected in buckets. Tapping season lasts for about four to six weeks, between March and April. Once the sap has been harvested, it is taken to a sugar shack and boiled down to make maple syrup. It takes about 40 litres of sap to make just one litre of syrup.
Unrefined and unprocessed, pure Canadian maple syrup can be used as a sugar substitute in most recipes, imparting the flavour of Canada’s iconic ingredient into a multitude of dishes, free from artificial additives or flavourings.
Available in four different styles and colours, each maple syrup having its own characteristics and taste. Most well-known is amber, there is also golden with its delicate taste, the robust taste of dark, and with the strongest taste of all there is very dark.
