Maple Sugaring time of year

It is maple sugaring season!  This is the time of year that producers of maple syrup begin collecting the sap from maple trees.  This is done by tapping into the trucks of certain types of maple trees to collect the sap.  The early European colonists learned of this process from the Native Americans. The sap is then heated to a boil, evaporating much of the water, leaving the concentrated syrup.  Try the Vermont tradition of" sugar on snow" where maple syrup is boiled and poured over snow.  It hardens like a candy!  Eat that, followed by a pickle and a doughnut!!

To learn more about maple sugaring this weekend (2/23, 2/24) contact the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center in Chatham at 973-633-6629. And the next time you eat pancakes, put the real maple syrup on them.
