Maple syrup is the reduction of sap from the maple tree. It takes 43-83 gallons of sap to make one gallon – about 4.54 litres makes one gallon (that’s if my American/English sums are right) – of sweet syrup. One producer can collect 12,000 gallons of sap in one day. Over a 2 1/2 month collection – as maple sap is collected only in spring – that adds up to 4,084,000 litres of sap!
Canada is the world’s largest maker of maple syrup. Over 30 million kilograms is made every year. If one litre of maple syrup weighs 1.32 kilograms, then the amount of sap tapped per year amounts to a staggering 1,841,424,000…nearly 2 billion litres of sap. That’s incredible!
Maple syrup is used for cakes, biscuits and pancakes.
But our favourite use is to sweeten a raw cacao smoothie.
