The Very Best Quebecois Maple Syrup
"One thing I have given many times, something that can have great weight and significance whatever the occasion, is this maple syrup only available in Quebec. It comes from various small farms, they're packaged in these ugly, funky cans that are uniform in design and then they're sold in grocery stores. Each one is syrup from a single maple farm, though it won't necessarily say where. It's incredible; it puts our idea of Vermont or New England maple syrup completely to shame. Whenever I'm in Quebec I'll buy five or ten cans to bring back and hold on to a few and distribute the rest as gifts." —James Oseland, Editor-in-ChiefThe Farmer's Can, 18.25 oz., $17.95, maplesyrupstore.com
