Hi, what other species do you tap besides sugar maple?
My conditions are not great for tapping (too far South), but I do it anyway on the
one(!) big sugar maple I have. For the first time we tried a wild maple, and the
syrup was a bit different but good. I'd love to know what else I can tap for syrup.
I tried boiling the profuse sap of a cut hardy kiwi vine once. Just the smell in the
house made me nauseous and sick-feeling.
