BOREAL AMBER Pure Birch Syrup is produced from the crystal clear sap of the paper birch (Betula papyrifera). Collected in early spring, the sap is evaporated down using a stainless steel wood fired evaporator following the same traditions used for many centuries to produce maple syrup. Unlike sugar maple syrup which has a ratio of approximately 40 litres of sap to 1 litre of syrup, the ratio for birch syrup is 100 to 120:1. Additionally, whereas the carbohydrates in maple syrup is predominantly sucrose, those in birch are fructose and glucose with lesser amounts of fructose. When these sugars are processed with heat, they caramelise resulting in a syrup with a deep, amber colour and a bold and unique taste. Rare and delicious, this syrup is fantastic in condiments (e.g. Bar B Que sauces, vinegarettes), in deserts (pecan pie, ice cream) and used as a glaze on vegetables. Birch syrup is a unique product with only 15 known commercial producers in Canada. Boreal Amber Pure Birch Syrup is finished to a sugar density of 60 degrees Brix so as to ensure the product is “shelf stable”. There are no other additives or preservatives.
In 2012, Shaw TV visited Moose Meadows Farm during Sugaring Off and created this little flick.
