Library Journal
Having tapped maple trees since age ten, Eagleson brings maple syrup to life in this fascinating look at the history, making, and enjoyment of this popular sweet liquid. The book begins with Native American legends and continues through the 1900s, explaining how syrup is made, how its technology evolved, and what the differences are in the five grades assigned to it. Also included are numerous contemporary and historic photos. In the "Cooking with Maple Syrup" section, readers are instructed on how to substitute the syrup for sugar and offered eight recipes that span from maple popcorn to maple salmon. Overall, this is a fun and fact-filled work guaranteed to delight folks of all ages. Perfect for public libraries of all sizes.-Lisa A.
