Our son Mark and his friends have tapped our maple trees and are making maple syrup this spring and luckily it is a very good year for the sap to run. He has had to empty the jugs almost every day for two weeks so far with the best weather yet to come. So here is the whole process they are doing. I will be putting it in 3 different posts so check back for the progress¬† Enjoy….
