Birch sap is a natural product of the boreal forest;
Birch sap was originally consumed as a refreshing, healthy drink by Aboriginal people;
Boiling the sap reduces the product to the consistency of thickened syrup. It takes approximately 100 to 150 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of syrup;
Birch sap/syrup can be used in baking and the production of candy, sauces, wine and beer.
