We are maple sugaring on our property this year! The kids are very interested in the whole process of making maple syrup.
Living in the White Mountains means lots of maple trees and luckily we have some friends with a sugar house. They tap our trees, we enjoy the benefits of free, fresh, delicious maple syrup, and the experience of watching how it is all done.
Today we learned how to tap a tree and also that it takes 30-40 gallons of sap to make only one gallon of maple syrup!
