Birch syrup is made by tapping birch trees and boiling down the sap into syrup much like our maple syrup. However, the flavor is very unique. Birch syrup has a robust flavor reminiscent of a fruity molasses.

It is best used as a marinade, salad dressing, condiment for sandwiches, or glaze. Birch sap is collected in the spring right after the maples stop flowing. Sap sweetness of birch sap is very low requiring a sap to syrup ratio of 100:1 instead of a 40:1 ratio of sap to syrup for maple trees.

The culinary possibilities to be creative with this unique flavor are endless.

Specialty Maple Lumber

The Uihlein Forest also supplies woodworkers and customers with specialty maple lumber. Taphole lumber is a culturally rich product milled from tapped sugar maples that have reached the end of their life. This lumber beautifully preserves the memory of the past sugarmakers through the color and arrangement of a century of tap holes giving a wonderful distressed look. Tapholes can be left open in the final product or filled with epoxy for a smooth surface. We offer custom cut taphole lumber and intact sawlogs.

Please contact us at 518-523-9337 or maple@cornell.edu for more information about purchasing taphole lumber.
