When I moved to Upstate New York about two years ago and bought a house with a bunch of woods on my property I didn't even think about tapping trees and making Maple Syrup. Then I started noticing how many Sugar Maple trees I had on my 5 acres and my new hobby was set in motion.

Last year I tapped a couple of trees and made one small batch of maple syrup....that didn't turn out all that great. I overcooked it and didn't filter it so it was kinda cloudy and had a bunch of sugar sand in it. It still tasted good, but I only had about one cup of syrup after a day of boiling.

This year I tapped about 10 trees and I'm starting to get the hang of it. I'm still not producing much syrup, but it's better quality and tastes delicious.

Now I just need to come up with a name brand for my Maple Syrup.
