2024 Shelburne Farms Maple Syrup (500 ml)

The sugaring season is short but lively for the Shelburne Farms woodlands crew: monitoring tap lines, checking weather apps every hour to keep an eye on the temperature, keeping the wood fire stoked, dropping everything to boil when the sap decides to run, and—finally—bottling the crop.

Shelburne Farms’ sugarbush is both the source of maple syrup and a classroom where students can engage in the sap-to-syrup story to understand how the earth supports us all.

Our maple syrup is delicious as a topping for pancakes, French toast, and ice cream; a sweetener for yogurt; and a wonderful addition to cocktails.

This natural sweetener is derived from the sap of sugar maple trees that thrive in the Great Northern Forest. Forty-five gallons of sap are boiled down over a wood fire to make one gallon of perfect sweet syrup. Maple sap flows freely and sweetly only after a winter dormant period and with days above freezing and nights below freezing. As the sugaring season progresses from February through March, each batch of syrup is a little different. Early syrup is light golden with a delicate buttery taste, evolving to a dark amber with a robust maple flavor by season’s end.

Choose ‘Golden Color with Delicate Taste,’ ‘Amber Color with Rich Taste,’ or ‘Dark Color with Robust Taste;’ or try two or three different ones and make an event of comparing them. They all have a wonderful maple flavor— you can’t go wrong.
