Maple Taste and Tour Weekends in Pennsylvania
Each spring, across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Sugarmakers are hard at work collecting sap from Maple trees and boiling it down to make Pure Pennsylvania Maple Syrup. This process is steeped in tradition and varies in techniques used. A number of these Syrup producers open their doors to the public on Maple Taste & Tour Weekends. You are welcome to see, first hand, how trees are tapped; sap is collected from the woods; how evaporators are fired to boil away the vast quantities of water in the sap; how syrup is tested, graded and bottled; as well as how Pure Maple Syrup is used to make other Maple products such as Maple Cream, Maple Candy, Maple Crumb Sugar, and a variety of other products. Enjoy learning about Maple Syrup and try some samples of this all natural product.
