Nothing Can Compare with the Authentic Maple Taste of Parker’s
For those who have only used artificially flavored ‘maple’ syrups, the taste of real maple syrup may come as a surprise. Parker’s helps to bring this special flavor to their customers with their premium line of non-GMO maple syrup products. To really get the taste of maple syrup, customers should try Parker’s Traditional Thick & Rich Maple Syrup. Made in small, carefully watched batches, Parker’s Maple Syrup is heated to a higher temperature than most maple syrups to make sure that the syrup is thick and rich and not at all runny.
How Maple Syrup Is Made
Maple syrup is one of nature’s most natural and organic sweeteners. The maple syrup story actually begins the summer before the tree is tapped. Summer weather means that sugars are formed in the maple’s leaves, but autumn finds those sugars being taken down to the tree’s roots for winter. Warmer weather in late winter and early spring starts the sap flowing to provide for new growth. It is at this point that the trees are tapped to drain off some of the sap. Because the sap is mostly water, Parker’s boils it to remove most of the water, leaving only that delicious, natural maple goodness and flavor.
Parker’s All Began with a School Field Trip
It’s likely that school field trips have been the inspiration for many good things, and this was sure the case when Joshua Parker took a trip to upper New York State with his class to see how maple sugar was made. Although Joshua was only 11, he was so impressed and enthralled with the whole process that he decided to become involved in making maple sugar himself. He spent the next few years tapping trees, boiling sap, and learning about the maple sugar business until he was ready, at age 15, to found Parker’s. In addition to maple syrup, Parker’s also makes maple butter and maple cotton candy.
