DIY syrup from trees (not just maples)

Speaking of becoming more food secure – make your own sweetener!

Adam is in the southeast part of Tennessee, so it may start to look like spring there someday soon. It will be a couple of months yet before anybody will be tapping trees in my area!

He is tapping a hickory tree, but I have also seen some folks in Alaska who have tapped birch trees and made syrup from the sap.

I have never done this, but I did at one time have a relative (actually a step relative) who had a maple “sugar bush” in Ontario and made and sold syrup and maple candy. The process looks like work, but the end product is delicious!
