Maple Syrup Day

December 17th is the day of ordering pancakes, French toast or another type of food that you top off with butter and delicious maple syrup. Syrup is usually from the sap of sugar maple from red maple and or black maple trees that help make maple syrup, but it not just limited to those trees. These tresses are found in cold climates and starch is found in roots and trunks of trees. The starch from the roots in trunk would help convert the sugar that raised in the sap in the spring. The maple trees get marked and then borrow holes into the trunk to release the sap. When enough sap is collected it will by cooked overheat so the water evaporates which will leave the delicious syrup. Which then gets shipped out across the USA and put on shelves for us to use.
