Taste of Huron hosts Maple Mania throughout the county
Taste of Huron held its first-ever Maple Mania food festival over the weekend, with a number of special events, menu items and tours set up to be tasted and experienced all over the county. The one common theme was that amber gold Canadians have always held close to their hearts: maple syrup.
Locally, there were a number of tours of sugar bushes and syrup operations, including Freedom Syrup in Walton, Blyth Creek Maple Products north of Blyth and Souse’s Maple Syrup, a breakfast hosted by the Blyth Firefighters’ Association and a maple candy-making demonstration by Susanne Robinson of Robinson’s Maple Products near Lucknow.
