Prairie Oils & Vinegars is proud to stock a unique, made in Manitoba product: Birch Syrup from the Canadian Birch Company. This Canadian company brings you distinct flavours from the land we live on by making gourmet birch syrup.
The making and use of birch syrup can be traced back hundreds of years to Canada's First Nations people, but larger-scale production and its use as a gourmet culinary product are relatively new developments. This is in part due to the difficulties of birch syrup production, including the high volume of sap required to produce syrup - an average of 120:1 versus 40:1 for maple syrup.
Beyond its rich flavour, birch syrup is also nutrient-rich, with high concentrations of calcium and antioxidants. The Canadian Birch Company syrup has a particularly high nutrient content due to the rich soil and excellent growing conditions found on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, North America's sixth-largest lake.
Come and enjoy a taste of this beautiful product at Prairie Oils & Vinegars in Steinbach or Winkler.
Or - better yet - come enjoy an entire STEINBACH Cooking Class dedicated to this surprisingly versatile syrup. Featuring Glenda Hart from Canadian Birch Company, who brings the same commitment to showcasing it in a vast array of delectable recipes. From savoury to sweet, this is not just a pancake syrup!
