Have you ever tried maple syrup, over snow?
The temperatures have been, err, rising, which means spring is near. One of spring's sweetest gifts is maple syrup, tapped from the sap of Maple trees which hug Northeastern Ontario's landscape.Visit a sugar shack in Northeastern Ontario to taste maple syrup in its truest form, and every form in between; liquid, spread, candy, toffee, or frozen. While you're visiting, take a tour of the on-site sugar bush and learn about the tapping process.Generally, sap begins to flow in mid-March and lasts for 4 to 6 weeks. The best time to visit is when daytime temperatures rise above freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit / 0 Celsius), because the rising temperatures create pressure in the tree trunk, and the sap begins to flow.…

Liquid Gold Rush: Where To Get It, How It's Made And Where to Taste It!
"Even though I've made maple syrup for decades, I still feel my sap rising in the spring when I know its rising in the maples." My first outfit up on the Quintet Lakes was homespun: coffee cans nailed on trees, rolled birch bark spigots, the sap hauled with the dog team, and an outdoor boil-down on a single pan over an open fire. The fire ran day and night, the night boil lit up by a kerosene lantern hung on the tip of a small bent over balsam tree. My syrup was the colour and texture of a used motor oil, but tasty all the same. Now, I'm making fancy grade syrup here on the farm with a more sophisticated…
An up-scale dining experience in Thunder Bay since 1999
The simple exterior of the Caribou Restaurant +  Wine Bar hides a classy and warm restaurant, one of the most popular in Thunder Bay. The local owned and operated restaurant around since 1999 is an orginal concept of Tom Pazianos and Bob Stewart, who are coincidently  also the owners of the very successful, local Keg restaurant. For upwards of twelve years the Caribou has been a favorite locale for business lunch meetings and for those looking to impress someone on a first date. In fact, Tom Pazianos warned me that a photo of the interior, with happy customers, might compromise a romantic situation. (Aha. A little Photoshop was in order.) Tom and Bob shared their decades long immersion with the…
