The Making of Maple Syrup

One of my favorite signs of spring is seeing maple syrup taps and buckets on the trees around me. Next Sunday is Maple Syrup Sunday here in Maine. If you're in Maine you might take kids to check out the process in person. If that's not an option for, take a look at the resources below for learning about the maple syrup creation process.

Maple Syrup the Modern Way is a three minute video about the process commercial producers use to make syrup.

Pure Canada Maple has a nice little graphic illustrating the maple syrup production process.

And Visit Maine has a little promo video about Maple Syrup Sunday. The video includes some information about the process.
