Welch's Delicious Pure Maple
Pure Maple Syrup is
made from the sweet sap of the sugar maple
tree. Every year in early spring when winter is just starting to
it's grip on the forests we head to the woods where we drill a
hole in the tree and capture a small portion of each tree's sap
the next four to six weeks.
The sap from thousands of tree's is
collected either with buckets
hung on the side of the tree or with Tubing which collects the sap
and guides it to a collection tank where it is stored.
Warm days and freezing nights are what triggers
the sap to flow in the
maple trees. If either of these is missing the sap "runs" or flows
very little if any at all.
When enough sap is collected for the day it
is transferred to the
evaporator where it is boiled and concentrated by removing huge
volumes of water. This is the part of the process that many are
used to seeing if you live in the northeast. Huge plumes of steam
can be seen rising from sugarhouses when the sap's running.
Maple sap starts out from the tree at only
about 2% sugar. It takes
the sugar of 40 to 50 gallons of sap (that's 340 to 425 pounds of
to make just one gallon of
pure maple syrup.
Pure maple syrup is not just sugar however, it also
contains many minerals and trace elements. It is the combination
of these trace compounds and the addition of heat when boiling
that gives Pure maple syrup such a desired flavor.
We have all
grades of pure maple syrup put up in durable, easy
easy to ship plastic containers.
All of our pure
maple syrup is hot packed and sealed and will keep
almost indefinitely until opened. Once opened it should be
refrigerated or for longer storage life it can be frozen --
worry it just gets thick and will NOT EXPAND and break
container like water. You can even freeze new unopened
of pure maple syrup to preserve it's color and flavor.
