Where does Maple Syrup come from?

Maple Tree being tapped[/caption] In cold climates maple trees store starch in their trunks and in their roots. In the spring, the starch is then converted to sugar that rises in the sap. The maple trees are then tapped by boring holes into their trunks and the released sap is collected. After the sap is collected, it is processed by heating to evaporate much of the water, leaving the concentrated syrup. While the maple syrup that we all know today is almost always manufactured in Canada, the United States has its own maple syrup production area in Vermont to keep up with the product demand. Maple trees are tapped by drilling holes into their trunks and collecting the exuded sap, which is processed by heating to evaporate much of the water, leaving the concentrated syrup. In earlier times, maple syrup was first collected and used by the indigenous people of North America and according to aboriginal oral traditions, as well as archaeological evidence, maple tree sap was being processed into syrup long before the Europeans arrived in the region. A popular legends tells of how maple sap was used in place of water to cook venison served to the chief of the tribe. Skip ahead to the future and you have the Canadian province of Quebec, which is by far the largest producer of maple syrup, contributing to more than seventy five percent of the world’s output.
