...but full of hope! We finally located a couple shagbark hickory trees at a friend's farm. We harvested a box of the bark to try to make syrup. I've started roasting most everything in the oven, instead of pot-watching on the stovetop, so hopefully the bark will cooperate with this method too. IF I can get a decent hickory flavored water, I want to use pear juice as the primary sweetener for a small batch of syrup (we have a generous amount of pears from another friend)! I'll let you know what happens.

Fingers crossed!
