Surprisingly, the majority of people do NOT know that maple syrup comes from Maple trees! Some group did a poll of about 10,000 people internationally, and less than 30% had any idea where is came from, (and many of those were probably guessing,) and only 2%
had any idea how it was made!
Anyone want to guess how many gallons of Maple sap it takes to make one gallon of syrup?
