Must have had Black Maples. Nice stuff for sure.
I tap for the fun of it and the grandkids love it when we go out collecting. We make the taffy on snow and roll it on a stick. I make a bit of syrup for them, but only a few little jugs. I think it's important for kids to know where their food comes from. Especially the good stuff.
I used to make 20k every spring selling it. I don't make it anymore but I freeze some of the sap. Makes a wicked cup of tea. lol
