Maple Syrup Time 030916

And the Tapping begins.

With an abundance of maple trees in western PA. 
tapping them for syrup is a common site.
And festivals pop up throughout the area.

I took these photos near Pymatuning State Park;
and believe it is a commercial endeavor.

  1. I'd love to see the whole process! Love the last shot!

  2. That is something I miss from the east - sugaring off time. We would go out to the sugar bush and watch the process and then bring home the very best treat ever....fresh maple syrup.

  3. Oh maple syrup!! It is going to be delicious!!! xx

  4. Even though our maples are traditionally used to make syrup, there is a group on nearby Texada Island doing it quite successfully. - Margy

  5. I would love to try fresh syrup right form the tree! I always buy pure malpe syrup as it tatses so good.

  6. We just cooked off 240 gallons last weekend and canned 53 pints and 6 quarts to sell. This year our processing was spur of the moment and we didn't invite anyone to come watch the process because we weren't sure what the weather would be like. There's nothing like growing your own food and making your own maple syrup!


Thank you for stopping by and sharing my ventures in photos. I look forward to every comment and especially discovering your Blogs with their wonderful photos, conversation and words of wisdom and encouragement.
Each of you are a blessing to my day.
