Maple Soy Glazed Pork Loin Recipe
It’s March in New England. Our icy world is unlocking, sap is flowing, and sugar season is upon us. The process of tapping maple trees in early spring dates back to the re-European settlement of North America. The Algonquins referred to maple sap as “sweet water” and used primitive stone tools and reeds to extract the sap from maple trees. Today, a March drive through any of northern New England’s country roads will lead to the discovery of maple buckets almost everywhere you look.
