Who knew that 40 gallons of maple sap = 1 gallon of syrup? Wow!
This weekend is Maple Weekend, so maple producers across the state are hosting open houses, pancake breakfasts, and tours.
Near Ithaca, you can find festivities at:
-Arnot Forest (Van Etten, NY)
-Sapsquatch (Enfield, NY)
-SweeTrees (Berkshire, NY)
The following video from SweeTrees describes how maple syrup is made.
