I actually made maple syrup about a year ago, a couple of roads away from my house. I know a family that makes it every year, and I was invited to come join them harvesting the syrup. I had done it there many years ago, but I had a blast. The father of a guy I went to school with was there boiling the sap, and we had a lot of interesting discussions about the process, including the importance of the climate. Apparently, if I remember correctly, it is vital to have the freezing temperatures, followed by warm days- which is also mentioned in the article. He said that gets the "blood" of the tree pumping, and greatly increases the syrup production. I got to taste the sap as it was being boiled down to concentrated levels, and it was amazing. I think that using natural resources like that is really cool. I had a great time, and know that it takes a LOT of sap to make very LITTLE syrup, but it can be totally worth it. I enjoyed gardening when my family had a garden, and I think that that sort of natural harvest and refinement for consumption can be immensely entertaining, as well as rewarding. I know this family usually makes enough for themselves, and that they give a little away, and end up having enough to get through the year. It is a really enjoyable activity, and I reccommend it to anyone that doesn't mind getting cold outside or covered in tree sap.
