Spring!

Thursday, April 07, 2011

At the beginning of Spring my husband (especially) an myself are busy producing Maple Syrup. We tap the trees in late Feb. to early March. The season runs anywhere form 2 to 5 weeks. It all depends on the weather. It needs to freeze at night and be in the 40's during the day to make the sap run. This year was a great year for us. It takes 40-50 gallons of raw sap to make a gallon of syrup. We ended up with 68 finished gallons. That's a lot of sap to boil into syrup!
It always proves to be a great time for the family and friends.

    I remember doing this with my grandfather who lived in the Adarondack's. We use to put the final product over ice cream. It was soooooooooooooooo good. Now I rarely have maple syrup. Thanks for the memories. Enjoy!
