Boxelder Tree Maple Syrup!
With leaves resembling poison ivy, the boxelder tree, native in Virginia, is seldom identified. Yet, it can be used to produce a form of maple syrup. How can I say it is a form of maple syrup? Because boxelder is a variety of maple tree.
To see some photos and an embedded video, please check out this article I wrote at QuirkyScience, entitled, Have Boxelder Trees? Make Boxelder Syrup! I would love to try making some of this syrup to test exactly the difference in flavor between sugar maple tree maple syrup and boxelder maple tree maple syrup.
I look forward to your visit. Please do comment, as I regularly check for them and highly value them. Thanks.
