Maple Sugaring

We checked out Irvine Nature Center today, and took a nice tour of the grounds.
We learned about spiles and how the sap is removed from the trees into buckets. We learned about evaporators, and how it takes 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup.
We learned about how Native Americans cooked the sap into syrup, and the tools they used.
