Maple syrup is one of nature’s sweeteners that is easy to collect, process, and preserve. On our small homestead we tap 24 maples using the old-fashioned method of buckets and spiles. We have mainly silver maples on our property which yield less syrup, but we canned 20 pints this year. Maple syrup is a great opportunity to get outside in early spring and break free from the doldrums of winter.
