Does your cup overflowth? So my darling granddaughters Hannah and Ella are helping their daddy tap our silver maple trees for sap. Two large buckets made 2 small Kerr jars of our very own maple syrup. It is delicious! Luscious vanilla overtones with a gorgeous golden color … we lapped up fluffy buttermilk dollar pancakes with this maple syrup for a sweet treat the other evening. I need to learn the recipe from my son-in-law. Tell me about what trees you tap. I hear walnut trees can be tapped. Have you tried fresh walnut syrup?
We do sugar maple trees. Is it time for you to tap trees already? It seem too early.
My son-in-law says it needs to be above 40 degrees in the daytime and below 30 degrees at night for successful tapping. St. Louis is warmer than Duluth during most winter days. When will you or someone you know start tapping there?
