Anyone ever made it...im thinking making maple also...
My uncle tapped a maple tree years ago , just to show me how they done it growing up.Never heard of tapping a sycamore.
Yea come January i am going to try it my grandpa tapped maple and sycamore.....i like the sycamore better it has a more nutty flavor but just as sweet as maple....
Maple syrup is 10 to 20 bucks in stores..
Ive got 5 maples and 4 sycamores in line today to sugar in January..
I hope you luck, takes a lot of sap , to make a little bit of syrup.Something you might want to think about trying, is when you tap ,an oxygen tube , I think would work good for a drain.You could drill the hole the size ,so the bigger connector end, would fit tight ,and cut it off how ever long you want it. Just a thought might make it little easier
Yea i was thinking same thing...it takes 10 gallon drippings to 1 quart syrup....but it will be better than store bought cause if from the farm here...lol
Do you have a big container to cook the sap down? Ive given it some thought but id think id have to cook it down on top of my whole house woodstove to keep cost down. It would humidify the house in the winter and likely smell real good.
I've heard stories about wallpaper coming unglued and drooping from the walls cooking maple syrup down in the house.
Nawww i will cook it down over open fire outside...only thing out is a little wood....i got a 5 gallon stainless pot...be a good time around a fire..might even cook a few dogs...lol
From my readings you can do black walnut to....
On my bucket list is making an evaporator pan to sit on top of two turkey fryer burners for making sorghum, catsup, BBQ sauce, and anything else that needed to be reduced quickly. I need to get back to my list.
Black walnut juice would have to taste terrible.
