The Blandford Mother nature Centre gained Alpine Historic Commission’s 2021 Maple Syrup Contest.

It was the nature center’s first time successful the contest that highlighted 5 other maple producers. Maple syrups have been judge dependent on colour and style. The Alpine Historic Commission’s contest begun in 2010.

“It was one particular to 10 (scale) on coloration and a single to 100 on flavor,” stated Mary Alt, one particular of the organizers of the contest. “So the taste was a major factor to winning. It was a blind flavor wherever no choose realized whose syrup it was. We applied letters and numbers to keep the maple syrup producers magic formula from the judges and those looking at them choose the syrup. Then, the historical fee extra up the scores connected to whose maple syrup it was.”

Blandford Character Middle is a nonprofit that gives educational programs about character and wildlife. It also delivers spouse and children education and learning on the earning of maple syrup.
