(Click on above link to read maple syrup article published in The Napanee Beaver)

Maple Syrup

maple syrup"Mah-Kwan Kadeck" from the language of the Maliseet Indians of New Brunswick translates to the place where maple sugar is made. Most Indians living near the inland waterway of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Valley produced maple sugar as their basic source of sweetener many years before the Europeans arrived. An Indian male was usually in charge of boiling sap while his wife and children assisted by gathering wood. Sap was placed into hollowed basswood logs. Hot stones were then placed into this sap, causing it to evaporate until only maple sugar crystals remained. Forty drops of sap make one drop of maple syrup. From birchbark containers and log troughs to wooden buckets and iron kettles, to plastic pipelines and modern evaporators, maple syrup remains as it always has been ...

Sirop d'Erable Pur

"Mah-Kwan Kadeek", du langage des indiens Maliseet du Nouveau Brunswick veut dire: I' en-droitt ou I'on fait du sirop (sucre) d'erable. La plupart des indiens qui vivaient pres de la voie d'eau des Grands Lacs et de la vallee St-Laurent produisaient du sirop (sucre) d'erable et l'utilisaient pour sucrer leur nourriture, bien avant l'arrivee des Europeens. D'habitude, le male etai en charge de fair bouillir la seve. Sa femme et ses enfants l'assistaient en ramassant du bois. Lls mettaient la seve dans les buches evides. Apres, ils placaient des pierres chaudes dans la seve, ce qui causait la seve de s'evaporer. Le resultat? Des crystaux de sirop d'erable. Quarante gouttes de seve font une goutte sirop. Des reservoirs de l'ecorce du bouleau et des auges de buches vers les seaux de bois et les bouilloires de fer jusqu'au tuyaux en plastique et les evaporateurs mondernes, le sirop d'erable est de nos jours, comme il l'a toujours ete.
