Maple Syrup

Ever wondered why a bottle of real maple syrup costs around $10 whilst maple “flavoured” syrup costs $3.50? Well – it’s harvested from the sap of maple trees – New York Times quotes that it takes approx 162L of sap in order to produce 3.5L of syrup! The sap has only 4% sugar. Yikes. That makes a bottle sound rather cheap then! :P
