News Flash on the Organic Front

As you know (if you've been reading this blog) I was bemused when I saw that Trader Joe's carries something known as "Organic Maple Syrup."   And yesterday I discovered that Wegman's offers it also.  What's the world coming to?  How can a product made up entirely of boiled-down sap from the maple tree -- "Pure" Maple Syrup -- be anything but organic?  Avi tells me he and Dannette once saw "Estate Maple Syrup" offered for sale. 
                     How yuppie can you get?


  1. "Organic" has, I'm afraid, become one of the most abused adjectives in the food market. Far better just to read your labels and (if possible) know your suppliers personally.

  2. i think it means that the trees have not been sprayed. i think.
