MAPLE SYRUP TIME IN QUÉBEC

YOU CAN SEE THIS SCENE ALL OVER QUÉBEC AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR.  A HOLE IS DRILLED INTO A MAPLE TREE AND A SPOUT IS INSERTED INTO THE HOLE.  A PAIL HANGS FROM THE SPOUT AND THE SAP RUNS INTO THE PAIL.  SAP IS A CLEAR WATER SUBSTANCE FROM THE TREE THAT HAS A SUGARY TASTE TO IT.  EVERYDAY THE SAP IS COLLECTED AND BOILED DOWN TO MAKE MAPLE SYRUP.  SAP BOILS AT THE SAME TEMP AS WATER.  212 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. 

WHEN IT GO TO 218 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT, IT IS MAPLE SYRUP. 

IT IS THEN TAKEN OFF OF THE STOVE, STRAINED AND CANNED.

IT TAKES ALMOST 45 GALLONS OF SAP TO MAKE JUST 1 GALLON
OF MAPLE SYRUP.

PICTURE TAKEN TODAY - APRIL - 5 - 2006

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO RAN OUT OF SNOW,
HERE ARE SEVERAL PICTURES OF MY
1977 SKI DOO EVEREST ON SOME FRESH SNOW
THAT FELL LAST NIGHT NORTH OF MONTREAL.

IT'S NICE TO SEE A FRESH COAT ON THE GROUND.

DAVID

Hi David - These pictures are beautiful, and especially this one above with the sugar shack with all that smoke coming out from the evaporation of the sap from the maple trees.

What a nice " cabane à sucre ''. The scenery with this fresh coat of spring snow, the sugar shack, all the maple trees with their sap pails hanging on them and of course your nice Ski-Doo make this picture just unbelievable. This scenery makes me very proud of my
country and my province to have this unique natural product right here near home.
