Just curious, has anyone tried birch syrup?<p><A HREF="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=birch+syrup&aq=f&aqi=g10& aql=&oq" TARGET="_blank">http://www.google.com/search?h...l=&oq</A>=<p>I saw a small container of it on display at a local sugarhouse a few years ago. The person boiling sap stated that it was from Alaska, as they don't have maple trees to produce maple syrup. Whereas maple syrup is about a 40:1 reduction (i.e., 40 gallons sap produce 1 gallon syrup), birch syrup production is a 90:1 reduction. It's about quadruple the price of maple syrup. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>We have friend straveling to Alaska later this year, and I'm going to ask them if they would bring some back.
