FREE DIY Maple Sugaring Workshop with Fabyan Sugar Shack on Sunday, January 5, 2014
Maple tree. Maple sap. Maple syrup. Breakfast. It may seem like a daunting leap from one to the next, but with the right tools and some practical knowledge, you can glean sap from your backyard tree and turn it into delicious maple syrup. In mature trees, sap runs most rampant in February and March, when temps are freezing at night and thawing during daylight hours. Give this springtime ritual a shot… join the gang from Fabyan Sugar Shack to learn how to tap your own backyard trees, what equipment to buy, which trees to tap, and special tapping techniques used by Native Americans and early American settlers.
