I have read a lot about maple trees and I am fascinated by the process of how the trees are tapped to give us that incredible pancake topper, maple syrup.  This sounds like fun. A

Deb the first time I saw those container on the trees I was puzzled as to why people were  doing it, then I found out that is how maple syrup is gathered.

The Maple Sugar festival should be well attended, a campfire sounds wonderful.

Debra, I would love to experience that.  Because you've had such a mild winter, will the sap still turn?  I always thought it came out when the freezing weather stopped and the sap thawed out?  I can see I need to do some research, which I love do to.

Debbie the farm down the street from me produces their own maple syrup, so I guess I will be seeing the buckets hanging from the trees real soon.

Sounds like a lot of fun.  I would love to tap some maple syrup for pancakes -- that photo looks delicious!

All we ever use is real maple syrup around here.  They can keep the other fructose, ick-tose syrup. 

They tap trees around here, too, of course.  But, I have never watched the process.  Thanks for an informative post!

Debbie, thanks for the post, now I know the sources of syrup are by tapping and collecting from maple trees.

Alex- I have always found it fascinating too.

Jenn- I only recently found out about this...

Juli-  I am not sure - I would guess so since this is still  scheduled.  I guess it happens no matter what the weather.

Kathy- Anything that involves treats is always a welcome addition!

Janis- If you go take lots of notes!

Dale- I imagine by you this is done all the time.

George- I have always wanted to see how it is done.

Carla- I know, doesn’t it??

Ron- I like it too!

Kwee- Vermont is the syrup capital!

Debbie- Thanks you too!

Silvia- I think that is part of the draw!
