Maple Syrup

Looks like the Maple Syrup season is coming up fast!

That means Spring is just around the corner!

One thing I never realized was that Quebec supplies some 75% of the world’s maple syrup. I wonder why that is… I know Ontario’s climate is A-OK for maple syrup production; and I assume vast tracts of Russia would be perfect. I guess it’s a case of tradition, more then anything else. I can’t imagine maple syrup is all that big a thing in Russia…
