Making Maple Syrup,

Tapping our Sugar Maple trees, 2/4 taps …..yesterdays was less than a half a gal. but once the weather gets warmer they should produce rather well

in just 1 day we got 1/2 a gallon of sap

  • Lynn McGinnis I would love to see this process, its very interesting to me.
  • Kimberly Paul Fox I will post pictures ever few days for people who would like to make their own maple syrup
  • Lillian Asbury My Grandmother did this when I was a kid. Sure takes a lot to make a little.
  • Joanna Stringer Goff Very nice Kimberly, when we were kids dad always made the syrup for the pancakes and it was always hot, not store bought in a bottle. I wonder if he used the sap and then made a simple syrup. I don’t have the recipe.
  • Doreen Monteith I miss this. There just aren’t many Maple trees in New Mexico. LOL
  • Serena Adkins Ellison Thanks Kimmie for posting this! I knew they would love it.. Guy’s Kimberly Paul Fox is a friend of mine, she lives here in West Virginia on a Farm with her husband and children.
  • Serena Adkins Ellison Fill er up!!!!
  • Kim Keffer Coffman How much does it take to make syrup?
    How much are you making?
  • Kimberly Paul Foxit takes about 1 gal of sap to get 2 cups of syrup, you have to cook it wayyyyy down, Im going to try and makes as much as I can, once the weather gets warmer the trees will produce a lot more sap
  • Kim Keffer Coffman Wow…that’s alot of sap..yikes it would take a ton to make a bottle worth…hopefully it warms up for tree had sap circles it was running out in the winter…I’m afraid we might have to cut it down eventually, it’s starting to die & it definitely doesn’t produce as much leaves as it used to
  • Serena Adkins Ellison Let us know when you start the next step!!! Exciting!!!!
