*Why is it “sirup” instead of “syrup”? Here’s what Funks Grove has to say on the matter:

Historically, according to Webster’s Dictionary, “sirup” was the preferred spelling when referring to the product made by boiling sap. “Syrup” with a “y,” however, was defined as the end product of adding sugar to fruit juice. Though the “I” spelling is no longer commonly used, the United States Department of Agriculture and Canada also still use it when referring to pure maple sirup. Hazel Funk Holmes, whose trust continues to preserve and protect this timber for maple sirup production insisted on the “I” spelling during her lifetime. It’s another tradition that will continue at Funks Grove.
