Legend has it that the Native Americans were the first to make maple syrup. It’s said that an Iroquois chief, by planting his bush knife into a maple tree discovered maple water. His wife, by collecting it in a recipient, used it in her cooking that very evening. Since then, maple syrup has become a prized ingredient in Canadian cookery, for both sweet and savoury recipes.
