Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Real maple syrup is the result of a lot of time and labor. Finzer allows the reader to chuckle at his beginner's mistakes then neatly lays out the process with options. The organization of the book is very amateur friendly—a bit of history and trivia, followed by a glossary of terms that are used in following chapters. Each step in the process is covered, from tapping the trees for sap to bottling the amber goodness. Equipment and methodology are well described, with some of Finzer's own adaptations. VERDICT This manual covers a very specific process in excellent detail and is more introductory than Rink Mann & Daniel Wolf's Backyard Surgarin' and more comprehensive than Joe McHale's Maple Sugaring at Home. Great for enthusiasts and those interested in home production in the right geographic areas—the northeastern United States and southeast Canada. Highly recommended.
