Ohio is one of the leading maple syrup producers in the United States, producing over 2 million gallons of syrup annually. The state's maple industry is concentrated in the northern and central regions, with the largest producers located in Ashtabula, Huron, and Seneca counties.
Maple syrup is made from the sap of hard sugar maple trees. The sap is collected from the trees in the late winter and early spring and boiled down to a thick syrup. Syrup producers use an evaporator to boil the sap, using natural gas, fuel, or wood to fire the evaporator. The boiling process takes several hours, and the syrup must be constantly monitored to prevent it from burning.
The quality of maple syrup is determined by its color, taste, and sugar content. Darker syrups have a more intense flavor, while lighter syrups are more delicate. The sugar content of syrup is measured in degrees Brix, with higher Brix numbers indicating a sweeter syrup.
Maple syrup is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes. It can be poured over pancakes, waffles, and French toast, or used in baked goods such as muffins, cookies, and cakes. Maple syrup can also be used in savory dishes, such as salad dressings and marinades. Check out our recipes on our website for further ideas on how to use our Amish Maple Syrup.
