Oregon Live is "Loving" Macintosh Hill Maple Works
A few years back we were featured as one of Oregonian's preferred food products. Check out this great write-up below by Grant Butler.
What We're Loving: Macintosh Hill maple syrup
Foodday's Tasting Panel recently sampled an array of maple syrups, but afterward discovered a Vermont brand with an Oregon connection that is every bit as delicious as many we tried. Don DeFlorio spends sugar season in the hills around Randolph, Vt., where he bottles premium syrup under the Macintosh Hill Maple Works label. It's the epitome of small-batch production -- last year, only 380 gallons of syrup were made from the sap of the farm's 1,220 sugar maple trees.
You don't have to go to Vermont to score a bottle, though. When DeFlorio isn't making syrup, he's part of a Portland-based crew that repairs fiber optic cables in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. That's why most of his syrup is distributed and sold here.
We loved his Grade A Fancy syrup, which would be excellent spooned over yogurt or ice cream. For pancakes or waffles, the thicker Grade A Dark would be perfect. Both are sold in beautiful 100 ml tarquina bottles, adorned with a maple leaf.
$6 for 100 ml; available at Kruger's Farm Market, Alameda Florist, Food Front Coop in Hillsdale, and Red Hills Market in Dundee.
Had a successful tour of North West Holiday shows. This year's crop is all but gone. Got to spend time with son Joe, daughter in law Erin and grandsons Connor 2 and Garrett 4 months. Joe currently stationed at Ft. Lewis, WA.
