Maple syrup has the nutritional capability of refreshing the brain and body and is a very healthy food product for growing children. In addition, the antioxidants it contains help to boost the human immune system.
Production of Maple Syrups
The processing required to produce maple syrups is complicated. Maple saps have to be collected in March and April, as the process can only be conducted when the temperature is below 0° C at night and above 5° C in the daytime. Farmers collect maple saps by drilling a 5 centimeter deep hole into maple trees that are over 40 years old and insert a duct into the hole. In order to ensure that this does not harm the maple tree and keeps it recoverable, it is important that no more than one hole to be drilled into a maple tree with a 25 centimeter diameter. When maple syrup is produced, the collected saps should be boiled in a big iron pot to evaporate their water content. The cooking temperature should be 4° C above the water boiling point. This technique has been utilized in Canada for generations and is recognized as a Canadian tradition.
Approximately 30 L to 45 L of maple saps could produce 1 L maple syrups.
