the sweet season, a story about maple syrup
as the frosty north american winter begins to dissipate, a very sweet harvest gets underway. little taps with small tin pails attached are nailed to maple trees to patiently wait for the trees’ precious sap. it’s maple sugaring time and soon the sap will be made into a delectable syrup. from the breakfast table to savoury dishes and baked delights, nothing rivals this woody, floral-flavoured liquid gold. how sweet it is, indeed. images : mikkel vang
once the buckets are full, it’s off to the sugar shack, where the harvest boils and bubbles and transforms from a crystal clear liquid to a golden syrup.
