A Bit of History
The Native Americans throughout North America used all parts of the tree: the leaves, bark, roots, and resin. Many of these were the origin of a family of sweets that would follow, such as maple syrup and chewing gum. The Iroquois of the mid-Atlantic used all parts of the hickory tree, including the bark which they boiled as a syrup, used in tea, and chewed to clean their teeth.
