Superior Gold Maple Syrup

Superior Gold Maple Syrup
This sample of tasty maple syrup is part of the 2010 “First Run.” It was hand-processed by the Director of the Cedar Tree Institute and carried out of the forest by sled and snowshoe four miles from a remote area on the shores of Lake Superior.

The making of authentic maple syrup is an ancient, labor-intensive process with the sap from the sugar maple running, on average, only five to ten days a year. Customary among the Native people of this region, it has been a sacred tradition for well over a thousand years.
