I would have thought it needed to be warmer for sap to flow.

Wow, I kind of would think it's kind of early. Got to call my pal in Attica. He makes a killer maple mustard.
Any one smoke with sugar maple wood? I did a ham one time with it. Good indeed.

YOur kids sure were smart cookies at Oink Witt, but did we mention we left the real stuff at home that weekend and only had crappy pancake syrup.

That was my fault, I forgot the real Canadian stuff.

I thought that was Vegas......I think one of the reasons for that statement is .....some people have a hard time remembering what happened in the firs place
At the comp Diva was nice enough to feed the kids breakfast they had pancakes....and after hearing how the Canadian Maple Syrup was so much better then the stuff in the states...Team Diva Q tried to pass of some imitation syrup to the boys....the boys balked and said thanks but no thanks...my dads got the good stuff....

Good boys you have raised them right.

I'm here at the North Central border of Massachusetts right close
to Vermont and a stones throw from New Hampshire. Maybe I'm
biased, but I think the best Maple Syrup comes from right around
here.
It's gonna have to warm up quite a bit for sap to start to run local
here, but when it does I'd be happy to hook you up with some of
the locals stuff. Only problem is , it's not as cheap as it used to be.
Last spring I sent a gallon or two to some old friends in Florida and
it was right around $42.00 a gallon... probably be a tad higher this
year, everything seems to be.

Whatcha consider way over-priced on what you're finding?
I know I trade with another buddy in Florida gallon for gallon
for Pure Tupilo Honey that his Grand-Daddy put up in barrels
when he himself was a youngin'......Honestly, I'd give 2 gallons
of syrup for one of that honey, but he feels the same way
about the syrup I send him.

Doesn't it take something around 10 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup? That has to account some for the high price.

It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of
syrup...sometimes upwards of 50 gallons sap, depending on
sugar content in that batch.

I think the "higher" prices this year are just gas prices. Ya still
have to drive around an collect the sap and use gas to cut the
wood for the fires etc... It's generally expensive yes, but gas
prices just make it that much higher . I'm adding
a link to a local sugaring house's syrup process, if you navigate
around the site, it will take you to thier stuff for sale. They have
VERY good quality syrup if anyone wants to order from them.

I have to say if anyone buys Maple Syrup...always buy it in a
metal container, never opt. for plastic....it's a flavor thing...
or maybe it's just me.

Can't wait for sugaring season. Nothing like fresh syrup
from the tap poured out on a handful of snow!!!!
