Tapping the Trees for Liquid Gold

Maple sap is clear.

The recent mild daytime temperatures and cool evenings are the perfect conditions for maple sap to flow. And Fuller’s Sugarhouse has been busy tapping trees and collecting sap to make its pure maple products.

We know many of you enjoy tapping your own maple trees. It is a great outdoor family activity that provides a sweet reward for your effort: pure maple syrup. Should you need any supplies — taps, tubes, buckets, lids, etc. — Fuller’s Sugarhouse is your resource for anything that you may need. Learn more and contact us here.

Here’s a few tips before you start. Be sure to pick a healthy, mature maple tree at least 10 inches in diameter. One taphole will produce up to 12 gallons of sap in a season (which boils down to approximately one quart) and larger trees can accommodate more than one tap. Depending upon the weather conditions, sap will start to flow immediately after tapping the tree. Maple sap is a clear, watery fluid. Some days you will collect only a small amount and other days the sap will overflow if not emptied. Collect the sap and keep it chilled until you are ready to boil it down to produce maple syrup.

Good luck — we hope your taps overflow with sweet goodness!


Pure Maple Syrup Leads the Pack

According to research by the Natural Products Industry, maple syrup is emerging as a leading alternative to artificial sweeteners — and food manufacturers are taking notice. Pure maple syrup delivers more overall nutritional value than many common sweeteners, comes with 40 antioxidants, and has one of the lowest calorie levels, making it appealing to health-conscious consumers.

Fuller’s Sugarhouse is proud to supply its pure maple syrup, sugar, and cream to food and beverage manufacturers, who are already on the maple bandwagon. One of our customers, a chocolatier, is using Fuller’s Sugarhouse pure maple syrup in place of agave to sweeten its chocolate. (This chocolatier also uses our pure maple cream to make its Chocolate Maple Cream Truffles.)

The Sweet Truth: Some Food and Beverage Producers use
Fuller’s Sugarhouse Pure Maple Syrup and Maple Sugar in Their Products

Do you love the flavor of maple? If so, you are not alone — many food and beverage manufacturers, bakeries, and restaurants use maple syrup as an ingredient in their products.

Fuller’s Sugarhouse is proud to supply its pure maple syrup and sugar to food and beverage producers throughout the US. Our maple products are used to complement the flavor of granola, fresh pressed juice, baked goods, sausages, gourmet items, and craft beer, among other items that you may relish.
 
Fuller’s Sugarhouse works with food and beverage producers that are dedicated to using products that are natural, authentic, and healthy.

Maple Chocolate Strawberries

Maple Chocolate Strawberries
Serves 16
Write a review
Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 bag (12 oz) semi sweet chocolate chips, divided
  2. 1 bag (12 oz) white chocolate or vanilla chips, divided
  3. 2 pounds strawberries, washed and dried completely
  4. 1 ½ cups Fuller’s Sugarhouse pure maple sugar, pulsed in blender
  5. 4 tablespoons canola oil (optional, to give sheen to chocolate)
  6. oil-based food coloring (optional), the kind used specifically for coloring candy
Instructions
  1. Put 1 cup chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl with 1 tablespoon canola oil. Cook on full power, checking at 20-30 second intervals, stirring each time. Stop heating when most, but not all, of the chips are melted—there should be a few chunks left. Stir until it is smooth and chips are completely melted. Be careful not to overcook.
  2. Divide out half of strawberries and dip in melted chocolate, holding by the stem, turning until berry is coated almost to stem; let excess drip off. Place on parchment or waxed paper lined pan.
  3. Repeat with remaining half of strawberries using melted white chocolate chips. To drizzle contrasting melted chocolate on coated berries, melt remaining chips in same way and drizzle onto berries with a spoon or squeeze bottle. Food coloring may be added to the melted white chips, if desired.
  4. Sift the Fuller’s Sugarhouse pure maple sugar onto the strawberries. Store, uncovered or loosely covered, in fridge or cool place for up to 8 hours.
