What is the bracha on maple syrup and why?
Being that the trees are probably planted specifically for the purpose of the syrup, it's not so far off to think it might be ha'eitz. After all, I've heard of some such rule that people say about orange juice or chocolate or something: that it's not she-hakol because the plant was planted primarily for that product. On the other hand, it's certainly not a fruit, as we normally think of it.
So which is it? Is it she-hakol or eitz? Why?
