Here is hoping that you got out last weekend to see for yourself the amazing love and dedication it takes to put syrup on your pancakes.The process is really amazing and time consuming since it takes 40 gallons of sap to make make one gallon of syrup. Add to that the nights and days temperatures have to be just right to make the sap run. Now for some, a reverse osmosis process can make it go a bit faster but most will just boil it down for the hours it takes to be that golden Maine made maple syrup.

The quicker but more costly way.
