April 2016

Thanks to February’s mild weather, Fuller’s Sugarhouse is projected to produce 4,000 gallons of pure maple syrup. We have already surpassed last year’s production and we are not done. The cold nights and warm days are just what is needed for maple syrup production. Those were the conditions on February 3, the date of our first boil. In February alone, we produced 500 gallons and we expect to continue production until the second week in April.
 
The bottom line — there is more Fuller’s Sugarhouse maple syrup and maple products for our customers to enjoy!


Fun Maple Syrup Facts

  • Typical maple sugaring season is 5 weeks, from mid-March to the third week in April
  • Any type of maple tree can be used to make maple syrup. However, sugar maple trees produce sap with the highest sugar content.
  • Pure maple syrup can be stored for at least 5 years in a glass container and 2 years in a plastic container.  And if you refrigerate pure maple syrup, it will last even longer.
  • You can freeze pure maple syrup for future enjoyment. It doesn’t freeze solid and the glass container won’t break if stored in the freezer.  Frozen pure maple syrup takes 3 hours to thaw at room temperature.  You can then refreeze any syrup you don’t use.

Fuller’s Reserve Maple Syrup

Fuller’s Sugarhouse pure maple syrup is hand-crafted in small batches, and each batch has its own flavor. Dave Fuller selected one batch this year to be the 2016 Special Reserve Pure Maple Syrup, made from our first boil of the 2016 season. There are only 100 bottles of this special reserve batch. According to Ed Fuller, the maple flavor of this reserve has a back edge of vanilla and he recommends pouring it over a high quality vanilla ice cream.
