It’s 42° so guess what that means?!?! Time to collect liquid gold from the backyard! 🍁
We tapped the maple tree two years ago and had some success. We didn’t know what we were doing, but managed to produce a couple cups of syrup for pancakes. Boy was it delicious! I only wish we ended up with a little more in the fridge. This year I’m determined to do a few things differently:
1. I won’t be using soapy equipment.
2. I won’t be burning the sap! (I’m still upset about that loss. 😭)
Last year was a weird spring so we didn’t get around to tapping the tree. I’ve been learning a lot in the meantime. With any luck, we’ll be topping pancakes with our backyard syrup all year! 🥞 - 1 month ago
