Maple syrup is considered by many to be a farmer’s first crop of the year.  There are several grades of maple syrup from extra light to dark.   The lighter the maple syrup the more subtle its taste.  Early maple syrup tends to be clearer and lighter in taste, but as the season progresses it becomes darker and takes on a more carmelized flavour.  Just like any other gourmet food, the flavour and aroma of maple syrup can vary widely between producers.  The reason for this is that the composition of the maple trees’ sap changes during the season, over the years, and varies from region to region.   Like a fine wine, each farm’s syrup will have its own bouquet.    

​In Simcoe County the sugaring season, when the sap is generally collected from sugar maple trees, starts around mid-February and can last to mid-April.
