    I always told my nephew it was tree pee so he didn’t want any of my good stuff and settled for store bought generic. Looks like this tree has an issue with sap retention-maybe it needs to see the equivalent of a urologist.

    That’s not maple syrup, that’s maple sap. Takes a lot of boiling to thicken it to syrup. If Horace can’t taste the difference, that’s his problem.

    I’ve never seen maple leaves get pale. Are they shocked by the tree being tapped?

    Horace is just thinking ahead.

    So there it is! Horace’s secret storage of sweets. Let’s hope there’s no banana peels on his way now…I’ve never ran juices from maple trees, but birch trees once. In Finland that birch juice is called “mahla.” It needs to be taken into freezer soon, or otherwise it would go bad. Birches don’t “mind”, if that juice is taken properly fine. I have few maples in my yard, so i’d like to learn about that maple syrup thing one day. So it needs to be boiled a lot to get thicker.

    Horace, put that pot of Sap on the back burner of your stove and let it simmer – for a week or two… And get the Baume meter so you know when to stop. http://maplehydrometer.com/

    I’ll say! Sapping season is in early Spring, as the last snows vanish and the buds begin to show.
