Pancakes, Anyone? It's National Maple Syrup Day! ...


Whether you put your maple syrup over your pancakes, waffles, or vanilla ice cream, pour some extra today in honor of National Maple Syrup Day!

Did you know that maple syrup originated in America? Native American Indians were the first to harvest and boil the sap of the maple tree into a thick syrup! In case you were wondering, tapping a tree does no permanent damage to the tree. In fact, only 10% of the sap that is produced in a year is actually collected! So, in honor of this awesome food holiday, make some pancakes today and smother them in maple syrup! How do love you eating it?

Fun fact: It takes about 40 gallons of raw sap to create one gallon of syrup!
