4. Amateur Sugar Maker

by Noel Perrin

This little 112 page out-of-print gem contains enough specific information for us to begin tapping our maples and make our own maple syrup.  Of course, I'll do much more research, but Perrin's narrative is very encouraging. Getting to the point of having actual maple syrup is a process dependent on good luck with the weather and a great deal of labor once the sap is collected. But we are going for it!  Next year.

Oh man, you should go for it this year. It's the perfect weather right now. Last season it was way too warm in the spring (no freezing nights) and it was a bad harvest. With climate change, it is hard to say if we'll get another good year in a row.
