The Syrup Shack

The sap is running in Bear Country. I'm no expert, but I did learn a thing or two about Maple Syruping. Does anyone else out there make their own syrup? I'd love to hear from you if you do!

Anyone want to know how the sap get into the tank and the how it turns into...



  1. I would LOVE to know how you make syrup. I was pretty surprised to see that it is clear...I thought it was brown. I guess that has something to do with the cooking. All I can picture is Little House On The Prarie standing around cooking it in a big kettle over a fire in the woods...

  2. Ditto! I'd love to know the process from sap to syrup. Please tell me you're going to share the secret.

  3. My boys just spent the day with my 59 year old Dad and my 90 year old Grandpa, mapel sugaring up on our family hunting land, near Pine City. YUM!

  4. We just wrapped up the 2009 Sugar season. This tradition has been in our family for 4 generations. This year my boys got to join the game, my Dad was so excited to see all the Grandkids running from tree to tree.

    One of my favorite childhood times was during Sugar season......
