We can just about guarantee that youve never before experienced a Vermont maple syrup like Bobos. It's not too thick, so a little bit goes a loooong way in adding a dark and just-sweet-enough hit of maple to pancakes, hot coffee and more.
Each spring, Skye and Tina harvest sap from the 2,500 maple trees that dot their southern-facing mountainside property. They boil it all down over a fire stoked with wood cut from the surrounding land, then pour it into classic glass bottles hand-labeled with the bottling date.
Tina says it takes about 55 gallons of their trees' lower-sugar sap to make 1 gallon of syrup. So each pint you pick up boasts the deep, rich, vanilla-esque flavor of almost 7 gallons of sap harvested from trees growing on the same slope.
Vermont is our happy place, and a drizzle of Bobo's over fluffy pancakes and tender waffles takes us right back.
