Maple Syrup Season Starts Today!

I'm hopeful for a good season. Last year was very short.......but sweet.


  1. Yummy! I've only had the real thing once, and never fresh. I've heard we can tap our big leaf maples here in Oregon, but I only have a couple trees on the property.

  2. you should try it, as long as it's a maple, sugar maples work best though. It's roughly a 40:1 ratio, meaning it takes roughly 40 gallons of sap to yield a gallon of syrup depending on the sugar content. I simply cannot ever go back to that gelatinous flavorless cornsyrupy goo, it's just plain wrong... We are fortunate to have maples on our property large enough to tap.

  3. drip, drip, drip!! steam, hot, SWEET goodness on french toast!


So what's the view from your world about that? I'd enjoy hearing it.
