DIY Maple Syrup

My dad makes his own maple syrup in Upstate New York. He sent me this photo of his outdoor syrup making area. I don’t know the exact ratio, but it takes an absolute ton of sap from the tree just to make a pint of finished maple syrup.

Next time you’re getting ready to be liberal with the syrup on your pancakes, remember this picture and just how long it takes to make the syrup and how cold the person making it probably felt.

    If it wasn’t for maple syrup, I would not eat waffles or pancakes.
