Maple syrup time

It's that time of year when maple trees in the northeast get tapped for their sap, and today we visited a sugar house in Greenwich, NY. Sugar Mill Farm hosted a pancake breakfast and offered tours and insight into the whole operation. This picture shows their sugar house "in full steam." Did you know it takes 40 gallons of sap to yield 1 gallon of maple syrup?? And boy, is it good!
