Tapping the Trees

This will be our second year tapping the two Sugar Maples that grow on our front lawn. 


Once the hole is drilled, the sap drips out immediately.


The sap tastes like water but with an earthy sweetness to it. A massive amount of water has to be boiled out before it turns into syrup - about 40 gallons will make just 1 gallon of syrup! But it's so gooood!!!
