Recipe and photos by Ellen Zachos

If you missed out on gathering sap to make maple syrup this season, and want to try something new – consider this recipe shared by Ellen Zachos that was featured in the Outdoor News Taste of the Wild feature recipe.
Shagbark hickory syrup can be used in place of maple syrup on pancakes or waffles. Use it to flavor sorbets or ice cream. It’s also tasty swirled into yogurt, in a glaze for chicken, pork, or salmon, or as a craft cocktail ingredient.
