Weekend Adventures in Maple Sugaring

Now is the time to plan an outing to a local sugar house where you will gain an appreciation for the ancient art of making syrup from the sap of maple trees. Maple sugaring, which takes place mid-February to the end of March, starts with tapping maple trees and slinging collection buckets from them to collect the sap. More advanced collections systems use plastic vacuum tubing, but no matter the technology, it takes 40 to 50 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup.
