Tapping the Norway Maple

on March 16, 2011

We tapped our Norway maple the other day.  Red, sugar, and silver maples are all much better for syrup but we’ve got a Norway so that’s what we’re tapping.  We tapped it last year and didn’t get much, but this year we did a better job and have gotten much more sap.  I still doubt we’ll get any more than a half-pint of syrup when it’s all boiled down but it’s still fun.
