Maple Sugaring

Collecting Sap

Yesterday we headed up to Topsfield for a maple sugaring tour to take advantage of the last day of the season. It was a beautiful (but a bit cold) day to be walking in the woods. My favorite part of the tour was going into the sugar house where the sap gets boiled down into syrup, it was so steamy inside and smelled of wood fire and maple and was just fabulous. To end the tour my group did a toast with a little shot of syrup, and then Greg and I headed into the barn to sit by the fire and eat hot dogs cooked in maple sap.
