Maple syrup and maple candy—sunbursts on the tongue, gifts from nature. In this lyrical account, Hauser tells the story of sugaring—why the sap can be harvested only in the Midwest, New York, New England, and southeastern Canada; how to gather it; and how to make syrup and candy and how to enjoy them. She also tells the story of the American Indian traditions and of their practices that are essentially used today in backyard sugar bushes and in the maple syrup industry. Wild Sugar also includes instructions for those who want to tap a tree and make syrup, recipes for those who love the taste of maple, and an account of one family’s sugaring adventure for those who love lore and history and a good story.
