Maple goodness
Michael Tercha / Chicago Tribune
Appreciate the nuances of maple syrup with a bottle (or two or three) of organic Three Queens Maple Syrup. Inside bottles, wrapped in artist-designed labels, you’ll find the early-season rare Amber, a very-maple Dark or end-of-season robust Very Dark, all made with sap tapped from trees on a Westby, Wis., farm. A 12-ounce bottle: $12. threequeensorganic.com.
Whether your holiday gift list is peppered with food lovers, serious cooks or those who seek sips for chasing winter’s chill, we have a few ideas. Local artisans have a sleighful of goodies perfect for stuffing in a stocking, presenting to the host of a party or gathering up into a gift basket. Here are a few favorites. Many are available in area stores; check websites for purchasing details.

All_Three_Labels copy 2

Three Queens Organic started as a way to save a heritage farm from being sub divided. The 184 acre farm outside of Westby, Wisconsin has been farmed since the original Norwegian settlers came to the region. The 80 acres of North facing woods are filled with Oak, Elm and Maple trees. Early each Spring we tap our 1000 trees. For a few short weeks the sap runs and is turned into syrup. 30 gallons of sap is boiled down to 1 gallon of syrup and Three Queens is created.
Amber- Amber syrup is made from early season sap and is lightest in flavor. Ideal as a topping for ice cream or a sweetener for tea, it is the rarest of the three queens.
Dark Amber- Dark Amber has a full flavor and a stronger maple taste. It is our best seller and has the right balance of maple goodness.
Very Dark Amber- Very dark is our most robust of the syrups. Coming in at the end of the season, this syrup is rich in flavor and is a favorite for pancakes, waffles and french toast.
Our Syrup is always 100% pure and natural with no additives. Just natural maple syrup the way it is supposed to be.

“What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more’ … Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: ‘You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science: with a Prelude in Rhymes and an Appendix of Songs
