Maple in Muskoka

  • Jordan
  • 2019 Muskoka Maple Trail

Maple Syrup, Canada’s Most Beloved Natural Product

The maple harvest (and its deliciously, sweet bounty) is synonymous with our Canadian heritage. The origins of maple syrup in Canada can be traced back to the native peoples of eastern North America. Legend has it that an Iroquois chief yanked his hatchet out of a maple tree where he had left it. The sweet sap trickled down into a birchbark bowl that was leaning against the tree, and the rest is history. The sap bucket hanging from a maple tree has become one of the most iconic and lasting images of an entire era.

Canadians look forward to the ‘liquid gold rush’ of the maple harvest every spring. We flock to our nearest sugarbush to pick up that sweet maple syrup to infuse our favourite foods with. Historically used to coat pancakes and french toast, maple syrup has expanded its uses and is now a favourite ingredient in many-a Canadian kitchens. Maple syrup can be used to sweeten your coffee, to liven up a balsamic salad dressing, to add another element to your smoky barbeque sauce, and much more!

Another amazing fact about pure maple syrup, is it is actually a healthier alternative to refined sugars. If you use sugar or sweetener in your coffee or or baking, make the switch to pure, all-natural maple syrup. Your body will thank you (and so will your tastebuds!).

If you can’t tell, we love our maple syrup in Muskoka, and we have decided to show our love for Canada’s staple product by celebrating its annual harvest with the Muskoka Maple Trail and the Muskoka Maple Festival. Get in on the sweet fun this spring in Muskoka!
