Baby bok choy is a cruciferous vegetable, like broccoli and kale, that thrives in the colder months. Our Vermont maple syrup is also harvested in the colder months. In late March, sugar maples start transforming the starch the’ve stored all winter into a sweet sap that’s harvested directly from the trunk. The harvested liquid is boiled down to 1/40th of its original volume to make the concentrated, delicious maple syrup in this recipe.
