For the past week we were fortunate to be able to tap maple trees in Western Pa and make the best maple syrup and maple sugar that I have ever tasted!
Above Dave and Ella are tapping a maple tree. Below we are boiling the water-like sap down into syrup.

Fresh Maple Sap right from the tree is a wonderful elixir! If you have a maple tree on your property I urge you to go out and tap it, if only to taste the sweet wild water.
Thanks so much!
