Sure what the hell daisygirl,

And I'll make sure to send Tre a special package of maple cookies.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

And the last time I checked, the French settled in Canada!

Just thought I'd revive this thread for a certain forum-member.
See what led up to this quote and I'm sure everyone will see the truth.

there are multiple interpretations and theories. most historians agree that maple syrup was probably simultaneously developing in both regions.

but most agree that the first true instances took place in the Michigan/Vermont area..


"Perhaps a more believable story is that of the Indian woman named Moqua. The story was recounted in the April 1896 issue of The Atlantic Monthly by Vermonter Rowland E. Robinson. The story goes that Moqua was cooking a prime cut of moose for her husband, the hunter Woksis. However, Moqua became preoccupied with her quill-work and let the pot boil dry. Realizing she did not have time to melt some snow she used some maple sap she had been saving for a beverage. Woksis was so impressed with the meal he broke the pot so he could lick the last of the “goo” from the pot shards."

at least we are legitimized in having maple leafs on our flags, if we wanted to.

the maple leaf on your flag is like a gigantic ironic emblem of the hollow sham that is your history.

Ow. That hurt, Dean. That hurt.

And that stuff in your maple syrup isn't the original thing.

Our country was built on maple syrup, damn it. It's even written into the BNA.

A lie. A lie that some of us will not allow to be perpetuated
in this forum.

Think about it, Dean, this is FB.net and FB is American and,
I guarantee you, he would prefer the real thing poured
over his pancakes over that diluted Canadian stuff. Guarantee
you.

The fact is that FB moved north from LA to Portland to be closer to a viable and unbeatable source of the original maple syrup.

Plus, why do you think he started the warm up tour here (aside from the last minute addition of Minneapolis to placate various Americans)? The answer: Stock up on maple syrup here in Canada before embarking on a world tour.

which is why the Catholics toured in Vermont so often.
I liked to tell myself that it was because McDave needed
to be near me. The truth is it's because Frank likes
to load up on the real stuff.

Dean, Dean, Dean. It's OK. Really. I can even send you a quart
from right behind my house. Just email me your address.

That's OK, I have Aunt Jemima's up here as an example of what passes for maple syrup in the US.

No, no, no. I am talking about metal quarts of stuff that
gets tapped out of my neighbors' trees, then sugared
in their backyard. You might want to consider my offer.

I used to volunteer at one of those old-timey pilgrim house tour places. We had pancakes every morning, wore old-timey clothes and were paid in maple syrup.

Here's some more history:

Virtually all syrup makers in the past were self sufficient dairy farmers who made syrup and sugar during the off season of the farm for their own use and for extra income. These farmers were, and continue to be, folks who look at a process and say to themselves, 'There has to be a faster, more efficient, easier way to do this.' Then, in approximately 1864, a Canadian borrowed some design ideas from sorghum (what us northerners call molasses) evaporators and put a series of baffles in the flat pans to channel the boiling sap. The ideas continued to flow. In 1872 a Vermonter developed an evaporator with two pans and a metal arch or firebox which greatly decreased boiling time. Seventeen years later, in 1889, another Canadian bent the tin that formed the bottom of a pan into a series of flues which increased the heated surface area of the pan and again decreased boiling time.

Alright, send me some and I'll do a blind taste test, but I'm using real Canadian syrup, not the stuff we export to the US. :)

if you notice in the middle of that story, the guy who invented the double-panned evaporator and metal arch is a Vermonter.

last i checked Vermont is in Vermont

Right, and he invented it after the Canadian guy invented the method for boiling in the first place.

have you already forgotten the story of Moqua, the indian from Vermont?

behind every good Canadian invention there's even better, earlier, more original American one

and feel the love. We would all be in agreement. This is silly.
