Hello Weedeaters!

I came a across a couple of Youtubes I wanted you to know about.

Both have to do with tapping trees for sap for syrup, beer, or wine, or drinking the sap.

Making maple sap collecting spiles from stag horn sumac. I made some back in the 1980's and we tapped the maple trees on top of the hills here at Rabbit Hole Hollow. Takes 50 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup. We did our in a caldron over an outdoor fire... was smokey syrup. I enjoy the partially boiled sap. The fresh sap is wonderful. We hung gallon plastic jugs on spiles made from the stag horn sumac. I still have one of the spiles around.


Maple trees, birch trees, and a few others can be tapped for sap during late winter/early spring.

beer and wine can be made from birch sap.
