Maple Syrup Time

Did you know Canada.. we're coming up on Maple Syrup time when you'll find plenty of Maple Syrup festivals across Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick.

Canada and the United States are the only two maple syrup producing countries in the world, Canada producing 82% of the total syrup. And it's Quebec that produces the most syrup - about 90%!

Maple Syrup festivals have always been an important part of growing up where we live and I look forward to taking my own kids to a festival this coming weekend. The festivals usually consist of pancake breakfasts, displays on how the maple syrup is collected and processed, crafts, horse drawn wagon rides and more.
