It's March 9th in Minnesota and it's time to tap the maple trees. Learning how to tap a maple tree is easy and enjoyable. When it freezes at night and is in the forties during the day is when you want to tap.
It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup. The process is simple you just boil down the sap until all the water is gone and once it reaching a certain temp you need to pull it off the heat otherwise it will ruined.
