Tapping into springtime

Traditionally, after the sap is collected from the tree, it is cooked over an open fire to reduce the water in the sap.

After folks got their fill of pancakes at Dodge Nature Center’s community breakfast on March 21 in West St. Paul, a few of them took to the woods to learn about the traditional process of collecting maple sap and producing delicious syrup. Naturalist Eloise Dietz led the group through the steps, allowed them to participate, and even taste newly cooked sap. Afterwords, perhaps, these pancake-eaters earned a new appreciation for the sugary condiment they pour over their pancakes. (photos by Linda E. Andersen/Review)
