Spring time is a magical part of the year in more ways than one. Not only does the icy grip of winter finally begin to lessen on the Northern Hemisphere, but the sweet sap of maple trees throughout Canada begins to flow again. In the months of March and April, maple syrup production across eastern and central Canada kicks into high gear as tapped trees begin to slowly yield their sugar water.
In Canada, the tradition of maple syrup stretches back before European colonization. The First Nations people of Canada are actually responsible for introduction syrup to the settles of what was then known as New France. Today, Canada is the world leader in the production of maple products, accounting for 71% of the worlds pure maple syrup.
