Pure Hickory Syrup // Hickoryworks // Trafalgar, IN
A Florida family staking a claim in the Indiana wilderness stumbled onto this here old-school syrup on the advice of a wood-gathering neighbour. Turns out, they were homesteading the motherlode: a forest of shagbark hickory. Hand-harvested bark, soaked, distilled, sweetened, and aged, becomes a sugary sauce with a spiced-up kick (imagine the tang of hickory smoke, flavorized). That means it holds up better than other woody syrups in richer, creamier contexts — such as, say, a bacon-bedecked bowl of oatmeal.
Birch Syrup Caramel // Kahiltna Birchworks // Palmer, Alaska
In some Birch Syrup equivalent of Hall and Oates the duo Dulce and Michael East have been cranking out smooth, silky goodness for over 23 years. This stuff is rare. Of the 3000 gallons of syrup being slanged worldwide, Kahiltna Birchworks accounts for half. This is probably because trees have to be hand-tapped in the freezing wilderness and it takes 100 gallons of evaporated sap to produce 1 gallon of syrup. Spoon some warm over coffee ice cream with a sprinkle of Alderwood salt and you too will be makin’ dreams come true.

100% Pure Vermont Maple Syrup // The Syrup Shop // Burlington, VT
From the towering maples of third-generation Underhill Farms, nestled in the verdant shadow of Vermont’s Mount Mansfield, springs this heavenly elixir, glittering as gold and, we dare say, just as precious. Still, that doesn’t stop us from drizzling with abandon over oatmeal or grits, mixing into morning chai, slurping transmogrific thimblefuls straight from the bottle — if pressed — or, if we can labor longer over our morning meal, twisting it into a warming, winter’s dressing, like a hot toddy for your flapjacks: a slow saute of apple slices in butter, cinnamon, and a shot or two of bourbon, turned resplendent with a glug of syrup as they start to caramelize.
