Hi everybody- a short announcement:
We have launched a new Facebook group for people that are interested in our efforts to make Maple Whiskey and Maple Liqueur.
You can go to the Maple Whiskey and Liqueur Page here.
Please take a look and share it with friends that you think might be interested in this and we’ll see how fast we can bring Maple Whiskey and Maple Liqueur to the Israeli market 🙂
We weren’t planning on another shipment so soon after the last one BUT we got lucky and made some Business to Business deals (“B2B”) so we’ve got our 4th shipment aboard the Zim Luanda (We love this ship!) and it is en route now. Yay!
To follow it’s journey, just click here and get a handy live update on where the syrup is.
As of now (July 27) it is off the coast of the Carolinas. It is due to arrive in and around August 16, 2016.
For those that wanted to know…
The Zim Luanda was launched in 2009 and weighs in at 40,000 tons. It is 260 meters long, 35 meters wide and frequently carries 100% pure Maple Syrup to Israel 😉
What more do you need to know?
In Canada, the pancake snobs eat their pancakes or waffles hot off the grill- they get eaten as they are made ready. The maple syrup is ideally served heated to make it thinner and to bring out the flavor better.
Nana’s pancakes have been a regular meal for us for many years- at both breakfast and in the evening when we are having a “breakfast-for-diner” night.
With 5 kids and 2 hungry adults, we usually double the recipe to give us enough for the meal, and to leave some extra flapjacks to pop into the kids lunches the next day.
We have Maple Soap!
Yes, that’s right, it’s not a typo or an error caused by an over zealous spell checker program.
We have worked with Tohar Labs (based in Karmiel) to produce an Artisan Organic Maple Soap.
It’s Vegan, doesn’t have that overpowering perfume scent that we usually find in soap here in Israel and it is made with just 5 ingredients- one of which is Pure, Grade B Organic Maple Syrup- it is a “Pure” soap. Nothing has been added to make it colorful, smelly, overly lathered etc…
It has been used on our kids- the ones with the sensitive skin that break out in hives whenever we use the wrong kind of soap. For the past week we have had no problems. We are happy with this hypoallergenic soap.
We are working on pretty packaging and we are working on the process to make it better as it is selling already- people bought some of the test batches which is always a good sign 🙂
We hope to have it in our online shop next week and we will be bringing it around with us when we are at the markets and the shuks. We will sell it on it’s own, and once we have some more variety of products, we will be making a gift basket which should look very nice and be very unique.
We will keep you all posted on this and on the other projects we are working on.
Thanks everybody!Order Now
