Sweet success

Janis Steele describes the maple syrup that she and husband Brooks McCutchen produce as "the revival of a lost agriculture." It may be closer to a lost art: The couple's Berkshire Sweet Gold Maple Farm syrup, made on their 200 acres in Massachusetts, comes from sap harvested every hour and has a range of colors and textures, including light, buttery, robust amber, and full-bodied dark. "The flavors are as different as whites to reds, ales to stouts," says McCutchen. $4-$38. 888-576-2753;
