Maple syrup is a syrup usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple or black maple trees, although syrup can also be made from other maple species such as the Bigleaf Maple. In cold climate areas, these trees store starch in their stems and roots before the winter; the starch is then converted to sugar and rises in the sap in the spring. Maple trees can be tapped and the exuded sap collected and concentrated by heating to evaporate the water. Quebec, Canada, produces most of the world's supply of maple syrup. Maple syrup was first collected and used by First Nations and Native Americans, and was later adopted by European settlers. It is most often eaten with waffles, pancakes, oatmeal (porridge), crumpets, and French toast. It is also used as an ingredient in baking, or as a sweetener and flavoring agent.
