February marks the start of the Maple Syrup season in New England, and Sarah is here to walk you through the tree-to-pancake pipeline of Maple Syrup making.

She'll talk about the sweet's connection to Indigenous cultures and abolitionists, then introduce you to the slow-growing maple trees of Nova Scotia, the Quebecois tradition of Cabane à Sucres, and the Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist.
