    Apparently it doesn’t hurt the trees or they wouldn’t still be around.

    Peter wants to tap into some of that tree’s stored nutrient strength.

    No. He wants maple syrup FOR his pancakes. Unless he LIKES sawdust pancakes.

    Don’t most people use the fake syrup? My brother even says that he likes the fake stuff more than the real thing (yeah, he’s crazy).

    If he wants pancakes isn’t he going about it all wrong. I am not a food expert but I thought pancakes were produced from flour batter which supposedly comes from wheat or other grains, with some butter and eggs mixed in? Can you really get pancakes from trees?

    I think that they are barking up the wrong time of the year. But then they are a couple of saps, aren’t they?

    I think he got part of that kind of switched around: it’s more likely for the tree to grow a fraction of an inch in diameter and extending each little limb a few inches.

    Huh? It’s an oak tree. Syrup from that? Ew, David.

    Not to nitpick, but sugaring season is Feb/Mar. Sap’s already run its course for this year. (and yes, the leaf is wrong)

    In a summer, the diameter grows a fraction of an inch. Growth rings, remember?

    And in that time, the limbs (at the twig end) grow much more than a fraction of an inch.

    My grandparents had a subsistence farm in Ohio from 1915-1985. They tapped maple trees for syrup and sugar. There was very little they couldn’t raise or grow and during the depression they traded for the few things they couldn’t.

    Well, as long as he isn’t cutting down the amazing tree to make a gazebo or grill up some ribs I’m thinking it’s not a bad arrangement.

    A little off-season here for the US, aren’t we? Do they have maple trees in the Southern Hemisphere?

    And when the tree’s tapped out, he’ll chop it down for firewood to turn the sap into syrup.

    I have friends who put sugar-free syrup on their pancakes. I have absolutely no idea what is in the syrup bottle and kind of don’t want to.

    Living in Mexico, I’ve discovered a great substitute for real maple syrup. It’s called “jarabe de agave”, and it’s made from the nectar of the agave plant.

    The leaf looks like oak, not maple.
