Tap Maple Trees at Home - Make Maple Syrup
Every March we go to the Malabar Farm Maple Syrup Festival where they display historical and current methods of tapping maple trees. It's a great activity for kids and super simple with the right tools. Just saw this in MS Living and had to check it out. This website gives you all the tools, info, and know-how to tap your own trees. Considering you tap around Feb-March, this would be a GREAT family Christmas gift! I never really ate much maple syrup until I cut out refined sugar, now... turns out it's delectable and, of course, much more natural.
Mmm..how nice to get fresh maple syrup at home..I need maple trees on my balcony!
