Sycamore Syrup

About Sycamore Syrup

Sycamore syrup is light brown – almost yellow – in color, and it tastes like honey or butterscotch. The smell of the sap as it steams off is slightly reminiscent of peanut brittle. It is made much like birch syrup and maple syrup are made – by evaporating most of the water out of the tree’s sap – and it is a delicious addition to many different foods. Sycamore sap flows have been observed during the January thaw. Not much more is currently known about sycamore syrup, and The Crooked Chimney is excited about being a contributor to a new field of research!
