What would Saturday morning pancakes be without maple syrup? This delectable sweetener with distinctive flavor was around long before Mrs. Butterworth’s debut. Maple syrup was first collected and used by indigenous peoples of North America from whom the European settlers learned the practice. Now YOU can partake in this age old culinary tradition!
Cincinnati Nature Center at Rowe Wood, offers Maple Syrup Making Demonstrations, allowing you to visit the sugar shack and get a first hand look at the process of evaporating sap into syrup. You can also take a guided hike where you will head out into the sugarbush and experience the joys of collecting sap.
