These pictures aren't in any particular order because I am too lazy to fix it, but I had a wonderful time last weekend seeing how maple syrup was made. I went to Kents Sugar House and learned all about it. It was about a 40 minute drive outside of Albany and a pretty drive up. I was about 30 minues away from Vermont and went ahead and crossed over so that I could add that to my 101 in 1001 list.
The different amounts of maple syrup you could but. Some people even buy the largest which is a gallon.
They place these things in the tree and the sap drips out into buckets. It takes like 48 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup. They even let me taste it and it tasted like water. He said that only 2% was sugar.
