Ever wonder how that Canadian Maple Syrup gets into the bottle that is sitting beside your stack of pancakes? Our friends over at The Workshop have made a short video that demonstrates the Maple Syrup making process from tree to bottle. Unlike other syrups it doesn’t start by crushing fruit or melting sugar, Maple Syrup is simply the boiled tree sap!

"Maple syrup is a sweetener made from the sap of maple trees. In Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States it is most often eaten with waffles, pancakes, and French Toast. It is sometimes used as an ingredient in baking, the making of candy, preparing desserts, or as a sugar source and flavoring agent in making beer. Sucrose is the most prevalent sugar in maple syrup."
