Tapping Sugar Maples for Sap to Make Maple Syrup

To make maple syrup you first have to tap maple trees. You drill a hole into them, then insert a “spiel” and hang a bucket from it to collect the sap. Later you boil the sap down until it turns to syrup. The ratio is 40:1, so you need 40 gallons of sap for one gallon of syrup. It’s a lot of work but not when you spend a day in the New Hampshire woods with friends.
