Y11 0326 Sap Collection

Feeding the tree a waffle was good. Sap is flowing into the collection tub.
Wow, how much do you get from a single tree? Do you do it to many? Do you boil it down? I love the idea of do-it-yourself syrup!

@allie912 There is about a dozen trees that are tapped. The sap is collected every few days. The sap does get boiled down into syrup. My neighbor does the boiling of the sap with a new setup he has created. This setup allows for the sap to be cooked longer without burning.

I usually get out to do some maple sugar shots but have not this year. Oh well!!
This is a superb set up. I see bags, plastic buckets, and all sorts of collection methods now. But my favourite are the traditional spiles and buckets.
