In keeping local I have not had any foods containing refined flour or sugar. I would like to try to make dessert and need another sugar substitute instead of honey. With the help of a neighbor I found a local gentlemen that makes Maple Syrup and Maple Sugar. He was selling last years products and will actually be starting to tap trees soon for this year's harvest. I was lucky and got a gallon of syrup and two pounds of sugar. John and I tried the syrup the first night and really it is indescribable. If you haven't had it in a while, go buy some! Maple Syrup/Sugar is known to contain high concentrations of minerals. One taste and you will not eat fake syrup again!
