Maple Syrup Review and Giveaway by Spring Mountain Living

Bruce Crossing, MI -- On her blog Spring Mountain Living, Krystyna recently reviewed maple syrup from The Mohawk Valley Trading Company. In addition, she’s holding a giveaway for one glass bottle of Grade A, Robust, Dark, Pure Maple Syrup.

“When Mohawak Valley Trading Company asked if I was interested in reviewing a bottle of their maple syrup, I was hesitant to be honest.  Our family decided to give sugar the boot about a year ago and I wanted to ensure that there would be a health benefit in doing so before we started drizzling on pancakes & desserts,” says Krystyna. “I was impressed with the number of nutrients found in the syrup and super excited to learn of the anti-cancer properties. I’ve had the chance to use this syrup in a few different ways since receiving it – to sweeten a beverage, drizzle on desserts and even as an ingredient in more savory meals. No matter how I try it, I love it!”

About the Five Little Homesteaders

Five Little Homesteaders tells the story of Colleen and her husband’s urban homesteading adventures with their various chickens and three, young children. They hope to inspire people to challenge the mainstream way of thinking about food production, consumption, health sustainability, and self sufficiency.

They live in the heart of downtown Phoenix, on a .15 acre lot and their goals as urban homesteaders are to produce as much of their own food as possible, teach and show their children about where our food comes from, be good stewards of the earth, cook mostly from scratch, using whole food ingredients, prepare themselves to be as self sufficient as possible, and simplify their daily lives through less screen time, more togetherness and less “stuff.”
