Wild Kitchen celebrates our rich cultural practices and unearths forgotten recipes inspired by the rugged necessity of the land. In this episode, a family of four moves to a tent camp in the forest each spring where their harvest birch sap on a commercial scale and boil it down into a rich, sweet birch syrup, which is an alternative to maple syrup in the Sub-Arctic, where it is too cold for maple trees to survive.
