It's a small jump from here to sugar cane sap....and from there to natural ethanol....a weak paleo rum....
But did Grok come up with the idea of adding anise seeds? Is pastis paleo?
I need to dig into this a little further. On a hot summer day. In Provence.

I just saw birch tree sap yesterday in a specialty food store.. i had never seen it before.. was curious how it compares to maple syrup which i use occasionally.. according to wikipedia, birch sap is 67% sugar.
Birch sap sugar is about 42???54% fructose and 45% glucose, with a small amount of sucrose and trace amounts of galactose. The flavor of birch syrup is distinctive???rich and caramel-like, with a hint of spiciness.
Maple syrup, on the other hand, is primarily sucrose and water.
Making birch syrup is more difficult than making maple syrup, requiring about 80 to 110 liters of sap to produce one liter of syrup (more than twice that needed for maple syrup).

i did once sap a birch tree. and it was kinda sweet. it wasin the countryside of berlin. it also start to ferment after sometime. its very interesting how this substance be.I made a hole in the tree. In the main period you just can break a twig which is more friedly to the tree. And the water drops out.
