The taste of real Maple syrup is so good- yet so sweet at times- depending on the number of cold days before the syrup begins to drip- a long wait but well worth it-- my Vermont friends say this is the best recipe and is a treat at their Maple Festival... Give it a try..I made it with this recipe from Margaret.
