  • Very interesting multimedia presentation on the maple tree and maple sugar.

    One point that could be added (that perhaps the international viewers might not all be aware of) is that it is the leaf of the sugar maple tree that is symbolized in the middle of the Canadian flag (in the form of a red maple leaf) (red for beautiful autumn color).

    Also, compared to today's ubiquitous and poisonous fake sugar substitute (fructose) that is so prevalent in so many foods (bread, fruit juice, cake, soft drinks, doughnuts, etc etc) (see short explanation http://is.gd/kxtX5j) (long explanation http://is.gd/fructose) and people's constant cravings (metabolically engineered via fructose to shut off your 'that's enough' food chemistry in your brain) for instant delight and immediate gratification, to have this special sweet taste at only one time of the year, in the spring is a lesson from Nature about the need for moderation. In other words, we can't and shouldn't always long for a 'sugar fix' (although many of us do!).

    Yes, fruits and berries will later give us the sweetness our tongue likes so much, but we still need the other 3 tastes (bitter, salty, sour).

    Anyway, nice slideshow and commentary. One wonders what percentage of the maple tree original forest is still standing. It's nice to see how people were self-sufficient using the locally available plant and animal life.

    Good support for the sustainable diet concepts such as the 100-mile or 3 season diet.
