Dear Sir /Madame,
Would you be as kind as to describe the difference between manna and the
fluid obtained from say tapping a birch tree in spring ?
Also, why can you only tap birch /maple etc. in spring, as I've found it
doesn't work at other times and finally when articles make reference to
edible inner barks do the mean the bast(phloem) or the cambium layer?
