Having landed in New Brunswick in the 1700’s and obtaining a land grant to settle the Steeves family, legend has it that the people already living here educated these newcomers to syrup from trees:
“Legend says: in the early days, the natives discovered maple syrup by accident. It has been told that one spring a brave native threw his ax into a maple tree located near their fire pit. While the women were cooking on an open fire, the heat from the fire started the sap dripping from the tree, down the axe handle and into their pots. This made their meal very sweet, so they collected this “sweet sap” in larger amounts and boiled it into a sweet thick syrup. Similarly, our great-grandfather made maple syrup in large iron pots over an open fire, using wooden spills in small drill holes in the maple trees.” http://www.canadianmaplesyrup.com/history/
