Minerals: Iron, Calcium, Sodium, Riboflavin, Magnesium, Zinc, Manganese
Tasting Notes: Escuminac Extra rare maple syrup is produced in very small quantities, making it rare. Golden in colour with bright highlights, it is the finest in our range. Produced exclusively with sap harvested during the first days of the run (only the sap harvested during the first 3 days), rare Escuminac light is an exceptional syrup with a smooth, velvety texture. It is light in the mouth, featuring a subtle caramel and honeysuckle bouquet with a hint of cinnamon and a lingering flavour.
Storage: 3 years in a cellar - 6 to 12 months once opened – keep refrigerated for quality.
Serve: Room temperature, ideally
Ingredients: pure organic maple sap
Method: In Spring, at the thaw, when the wood of the maple trees swells and temperatures in the daytime are positive (+10°C) and negative at night, conditions are ideal to begin the harvest. During this short period, the maple sap begins to flow. The harvested sap must be boiled on the same day. Heating at a constant high heat has to be mastered by the maple syrup producer. Slowly, the water contained in the sap evaporates, the sugars are gently concentrated. Following a complex sequence of chemical reactions, when the syrup reaches a temperature of 104°C and 66°Brix, the sap becomes maple syrup (pH 7). Produced and bottled at the ESCUMINAC sugarwood.
