Spring showed up unexpectedly in Ontario’s cottage country – which is great news for folks hoping to visit a real sugar shack in the province’s great outdoors. This March and April, pack the family and head to the wilderness north of Toronto to discover how “Canada’s liquid gold” is converted from tree sap into syrup, and taste for yourself how delicious it can be at a rural pancake breakfast or festival. There’s plenty happening this sweet season in the Explorers’ Edge region of Ontario!
