Don't forget your maple and birch trees are "fruit" trees too

I was inspired to tap my silver maple a few years ago. I tried to find the post but it has evaporated into GW space.

It's fun and even if you only have one tree like I do you can have one super duper memorable Sunday morning waffle breakfast to remember.

I spent a long time trying to find an inexpensive kit and I bought mine from Maple Kits. They use inexpensive 2-liter bottles.

Here is a link that might be useful: Maple Kits

I'm tempted, but I have too many kitchen things going all the time as it is! My little passions for this and that (making jam, bread, beer, pasta, tortillas ... ) take up a lot of space already. I remember your earlier thread, and we have five very large maples (silvers and sycamore maples, i.e. acer psuedoplatanus) and I'm sure we could get a couple of gallons at least, but I'd best resist.

Thanks for the link, though. It's interesting.

Glad you enjoyed it. Send me some if you have extra waffles.

A guy who was into making wine a few years ago,told me that Birch bark can be made into wine by some type of boiling process. Brady
