Why was I a recipient? Well, the students had actually gathered the sweet, edible, goodness for a biology project, and used one of my class periods to teach a lesson to other biology students about the science of syrup gathering.
It came from our school's own maple trees, and is fabulous. It has a rich, textured sweetness with a complex finish that hints of honey and nuts. I cannot wait to pour it over pancakes or French toast tomorrow morning for breakfast.
