Maple Sugar & Maple Syrup Review: Mohawk Valley Trading Company

My wife jokes that she has maple syrup flowing thru her veins. Give her a bottle of maple syrup and she'll have recipes for at least a hundred different items ready and waiting for you to try out, many of which we've already tried . I recently received some maple syrup and maple sugar from Mohawk Valley Trading Co. of Utica, New York to try out and she was in heaven.

As you may notice from the bottle above, their syrup is darker than your typical maple syrup. This makes it perfect for baking and cooking, as the flavor is less delicate and more robust. Dark, Robust Maple Syrup (formerly called Grade B Maple Syrup) from the Mohawk Valley Trading Company comes in glass bottles and is made primarily from sugar maple sap, which is preferred for maple syrup production because it has an average sugar content of two percent. Sap from other maple species is usually lower in sugar content, and about twice as much is needed to produce the same amount of finished syrup.

A Case for the Winemaker 
Ainsley McGregor Book 1 
by Candace Havens 
Genre: Cozy Mystery 

The closer she gets to the truth, the more she finds herself drowning in trouble.

It’s an exciting time in Sweet River, Texas, and the whole town's talking. Maybe, a little too much. Former English professor Ainsley McGregor has gambled everything on her new business: Bless Your Art, an artisan market where local artists sell their wares and teach classes.

The bright, white space is filled to the brim with colorful art, yarn, jewelry, pet treats, antiques and even a few medieval weapons. Oh, and there are wine tastings. Everything's better with wine. Ainsley is surprised by how well things are going–right up until the moment her Great Dane finds a dead body. With her friend accused of the murder, it’s up to Ainsley to find the real killer.

As the suspect list grows longer, Ainsley has her work cut out for her. The task is made more difficult by the fact her brother, the sheriff, doesn’t seem to want her help. If she doesn’t wrap up the case soon, she might be the next wine, um, one to die.
