Single Forest - Forêt unique - Produit par / Produced by Martin Malenfant
This syrup is a pure nectar, and very fashionable in great chefs’ kitchens, where birch syrup (yellow birch) stands out because of its unique and delicious taste and its versatility. It can be used instead of very aged balsamic vinegar.
A NECTAR PRODUCED IN VERY SMALL QUANTITIES, WHICH MUST UNDOUBTEDLY HAVE BEEN THE BALSAMIC VINEGAR OF THE NATIVE AMERICANS IN THE PAST!
Yellow birch syrup vs Birch syrup
Rare and sought out, there must be a distinction made between yellow birch syrup and birch syrup, that is a more common and much less complex syrup than the yellow birch syrup.
We will therefore speak of white birch and not yellow birch, two totally distinct trees. The confusion certainly has roots in the tree name, since in the forest both species are distinct. The yellow birch is a big tree which is mainly found in mature, centuries-old forests, while the white birch mainly grows in transitional forests. The bark of the white birch is white, as the name suggests, while that of the yellow birch is golden and changes over the years. On the young tree the bark is smooth, becoming rougher and darker as it ages.

Having read that this could be used like balsamic vinegar, I was eager to try it out. This yellow birch syrup did not disappoint. Indeed, it does taste similar to balsamic. I tried it with some cherry tomatoes and was fantastic. Can’t wait to explore other ways of using the syrup! Definitely worth the buy!
