Ever since I was a very little girl, I have known what it is like to produce maple syrup. Trudging through the melting snow, hauling buckets heavy with the collected sap, and the pleasure of having your dad assure you that you are doing a good job.
I have never ever liked the horrid imitation syrups. If it’s not the real deal, I’d rather eat my pancakes with just butter.
Last week, the wonderful folks over at Coombs Family Farms sent me a sample of their maple syrup products. What initially impressed me was that they have produced 100% pure maple syrup since 1840, and have been producing certified organic maple syrup since 1988.
When I tasted the syrup, I knew it was the real deal. It was rich and flavorful and reminded me of our own maple syrup. Their syrup has been described as a “deep, dark syrup evocative of a New England fall” and as “Deep, earthy, complex, the essence of spring in maple country (Gourmet, March 2006).”
Wouldn’t you like to try some for yourself?
Those very kind folks have sent me extra maple syrup products so that two lucky readers will win the following items:
1 Jar of 100% Pure Coombs Family Maple Syrup
1 Jar of Maple Sugar
1 Maple Man Maple Sugar Candy
