Joan Donaldsonabout this book: Do you have a few sugar maple trees in your front yard or next to the street and you would like to try making maple syrup? Then read through this short book, and you will find a basic guide that will explain the process. You will learn when to tap your trees and how the weather creates the conditions for sugaring, plus what sort of spiles to use and how far to drill into the tree. Donaldson offers tips such as tossing in butter to keep the syrup from boiling over the pan. And you will discover more about the history of sugaring where the best geographic locations exist for cultivating a sugar bush. A few recipes are included to help the beginner learn to use syrup in other dishes besides dousing pancakes.
