    Not as interesting for me as I had hoped It wasn t really about one family s quest for the sweetest harvest because Whynott kept including other characters in his story And most of the book is focused on how many pounds of syrup the main character was buying from whom and when Certainly we get an overview of the current state of the Maple Syrup industry, and it s not the buckets and fire burning boilers of old that we might first associate with the product When Whynott is telling the story Not as interesting for me as I had hoped It wasn t really about one family s quest for the sweetest harvest because Whynott kept including other characters in his story And most of the book is focused on how many pounds of syrup the main character was buying from whom and when Certainly we get an overview of the current state of the Maple Syru...

    Interesting topic, just not very well written There is no sense of flow the author just jumps from idea to idea, paragraph to paragraph, without thought to telling a story.

    Because I grew up in Vermont and have memories of being in my grandfather s sugarhouse, I was drawn to this new book I know enough to know that maple syrup is like liquid gold, since it takes so many gallons of sap to make a gallon of syrup I used to cringe as I watched my mother in law pour tons on her French toast only to have it wasted down the drain as the plate was washed I ve experienced the party atmosphere as my bother in law boiled and I enjoyed gathering the sap in buckets Then alo Because I grew up in Vermont and have memories of being in my grandfather s sugarhouse, I was drawn to this new book I know enough to know that maple syrup is like liquid gold, since it takes so many gallons of sap to make a gallon of syrup I used to cringe as I watched my mother in law pour tons on her French toast only to have it wasted down the drain as the plate was washed I ve experienced the party atmosphere as my bother in law boiled and I enjoyed gathering the sap in buckets Then along came a cousin who graduated to the plastic lines, bringing the sap right into the sugarhouse.Now, as the author points out, producing maple syrup is big business There s new technology with reverse osmosis machines allowing for quick...

    Pure maple syrup layered with fresh homemade yogurt as desert at Aux Canadiens Restaurant in old Quebec City began my life long love affair with yogurt and joy at REAL Maple Syrup After finishing this book, I may never eat another pancake again or at least it might be awhile before I tip a fake syrup bottle Just kidding, since I enjoy pancakes plain most of the time just a touch of butter And, of course, who are we kidding that stuff in the plastic bottle is NOT syrup it s all the Pure maple syrup layered with fresh homemade yogurt as desert at Aux Canadiens Restaurant in old Quebec City began my life long love affair with yogurt and joy at REAL Maple Syrup After finishing this book, I may never eat another pancake again or at least it might be awhile before I tip a fake syrup bottle Just kidding, since I enjoy pancakes plain most of the time just a touch of butter And, of course, who are we kidd...

    Maple syrup is closely linked to Canada and New England, two of the places I ve lived and considered to be home This book attracted me because of the growing influence of the US producers and especially those from Vermont and New Hampshire, who are largely the same stock as my family The pluses of the book were that it discussed some of the recent history of one of North America s oldest agricultural crafts Introd...

    OVERVIEWOver the course of a year, one man discovers the ins and outs of the maple syrup business Bits of history are included, but much of the book devotes itself to the years 2010 2012 and the unusual production The work ends with a focus towards the impact of climate change, though this has been dropped a few times earlier in the book.MY THOUGHTSAs someone who knew nothing of maple syrup and who uses Log Cabin on her pancakes , I picked this up at my local library on a whim Darn you, new OVERVIEWOver the course of a year, one man discovers the ins and outs of the maple syrup business Bits of history are included, but much of the book devotes itself to the years 2010 2012 and the unusual production The work ends with a focus towards the impact of climate change, though this has been droppe...

    I was drawn to this book as I dabble in maple syrup myself, and have many friends in Michigan who make syrup on a larger scale I had two problems with this book First was the writing I was surprised that an English professor had written it as I felt the book was lackluster The writing didn t jump out at me, move me or inspire me The test of a good writer is one that can make mundane events draw you in as t...

    This book was underwhelming Mr Whynott great last name tries to hold together a story about sugarmakers in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, and Canada, but it s kind of a slog That s not entirely his fault There s no inherent drama or conflict His presence in the narrative isn t intrusive, just extra baggage If he had aimportant role in the presence of the story, it may have been a better read.As an aside, I ve been working on a maple syrup piece since January This book dropped in A This book was underwhelming Mr Whynott great last name tries to hold together a story about sugarmakers in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, and Canada, but it s kind of a slog That s not entirely his fault There s no inherent drama or conflict His presence in the narrative isn t intrusive, just extra baggage If he had aimportant role...
