Eastern Ohio maple syrup wins international award


SALEM, Ohio — OK, so maybe they can’t claim “world’s best” status, but Dave and Nancy Hively, of Misty Maples Sugar House in Salem, Ohio, won Best of Show honors at the annual meeting of the North American Maple Syrup Council and the International Maple Syrup Institute.

The Hivelys’ medium amber entry won its class and then went on to capture Best of Show honors — topping entries in all categories of syrup.

The Hivelys also won first place for their light amber entry, and their dark amber entry received an “excellent” rating.

The convention, held in Frankenmuth, Mich., Oct. 23-26, drew entries from several states and Canadian provinces.
