Re: Maple Sugar Season!!

I have never in my life seen a maple tree. I don't think I'd get much tapping the sage brush.

Dh boiled his first batch today and sent a jar home with our friends tonight. We all had maple taffy on snow, too. More tomorrow!

Aw, that's really cool! My boys love real maple syrup and when I told them it came from a tree, they wanted to plant one.

On our 1/8 acre that includes a house, garage and concrete back yard in the middle of suburban Melbourne.

I recently picked up a book called "101 things to do before you're 12"

Tapping a maple tree isn't on the list, but I just realized how cool it would be actually. My kids are pretty savvy on where things come from, but wrapping their head around that yummy stuff for pancakes coming from a tree isn't on their radar. You guys are very lucky.

Re: Maple Sugar Season!!

I feel like stuff like this is so simple and it seems so complex! Like how does this happen? Do all maple trees make maple syrup? Did you plant these trees? You just stick a tap in there?
