Tips for Making High Quality, Strong Flavored Syrup

Cornell Maple Program’s Maple Specialist Aaron Wightman presents a virtual workshop via Zoom, Tips for Making High Quality, Strong Flavored Syrup, on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at 6:30pm-7:45pm.  Pre-registration is required and offered at $10 for Berkshire Grown Members and $15 non-members.

If you’ve tasted a lot of syrup, then you know there is tremendous variation in quality and flavor.  In this talk we will discuss practices to eliminate off-flavors and strategies to amplify good flavors.  We will also take a look at new methods developed by Cornell to make intense-flavored maple sugar from dark syrup and the potential use of this sugar in new value-added products.
