I’ve had hickory syrup. It’s nothing like the maple syrup we’re all used to. It’s made from the bark of the bark of shagbark hickory trees
Gordon Jones and Sherrie Yarling have perfected their recipe of hickory syrup, which they sell throughout the U.S. via their website, as well as in Dean & Deluca’s catalog. Some great media coverage, including the New York Times, Gourmet magazine, and Midwest Living, has also lead to some exploding popularity of their tasty syrup. And it doesn’t hurt that Wolfgang Puck, Todd Gray, and Rick Bayless have used their product either.
According to some of the food writers who have sampled Gordon and Sherrie’s syrup, it’s a syrup where “you take a bit, and it bites you back.”
The hickory syrup is available directly from the Hickory Works website, and is available in 8 ounce through 1 gallon sizes. You can even get cases of 1.7 ounce single serving sizes and 3.4 ounce sampler sizes, any of which would make a great Christmas gift for your favorite Visit Indiana travel writer (I’m just sayin’).
The website even has recipes to use with your new hickory syrup, so be sure to stop by and check it out.
Since Hickory Works does not have any retail outlet themselves, you can order directly from their website. Order by December 12th, and your shipment will arrive in time for Christmas.
