Winter is passing and cold nights and bright sunny days can only mean it’s Maple Syrup time! On our run this morning we came across trees tapped along the back road.
There are a number of types of maples that can be tapped and apparently these old beautiful trees are just right.
I had the opportunity to help make maple syrup with a dear friend who tapped the trees on her beautiful property. I always thought it would be a big involved production to make syrup but it wasn’t. She just boiled it down on her barbeque. It was just as simple as the syrup is. Pure Canadian sweetness.
I checked out the web to find out more about maple syrup’s history and production. If you have a minute check it out here. Maple Syrup
Mike tapped one of our trees when we lived in HL and made maple syrup. It was really easy, but the end result was a very small batch. Still, great fun!
