  • 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 you..my 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!!!!
