    Maple syrup production Drain. There are several different types of maple trees, only two of which are of importance for the production of maple syrup. The sugar maple is the main syrup source. In addition, the sap of the black maple (Acer nigrum) has a similar quality (2 to 3% sugar, light and bright colors and tasteful) and length of draining. The Alcona FFA Maple Syrup Production Facility started in when students in the Alcona High School AgriScience classes collected a small amount of sap and boiled it down to produce our first 12 gallons of maple syrup. That sparked our interest in the process and construction of the current Sugar Shack began that fall.

    The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers (French: Fédération des producteurs acéricoles du Québec, FPAQ) is a government-sanctioned private organization that regulates the production and marketing of maple syrup in of , the FPAQ produced 94% of Canadian maple syrup and 77% of the world's supply. The FPAQ plays a role in the collective marketing of maple products .   Start your study of maple syrup production with this vocabulary worksheet. Students can use a dictionary, the internet, or a book on the topic to define each term from the word bank. As each word is defined, students should write it on the blank line next to its definition.

      In , despite sugar-makers in New England placing 5 percent more taps, a spate of degree temperatures in March led to a 27 percent drop in maple syrup production .   Only a few types of maple trees produce sap. While 13 species of maple trees thrive in Canada and the U.S., not every variety is tapped for syrup. The list includes sugar maple, black maple and red maple. But maple trees aren’t only used for syrup. Next time you spot a bowling pin or pick up a baseball bat, check to see if it’s made of maple.

A book for the curious, readers learn how and why trees, particularly sugar maples, produce and deliver the sweet sap from which maple syrup is made.

Traveling with the reader through a maple season, the author describes traditional and modern operations, and the chemistry and physics involved in converting sap to syrup/5(5).

Very informative; a definitive resource on maple sugar. Topics range from the history to the production, then a full range of recipes is added to ensure the reader has a full sense of how important maple syrup/ sugar actually can be.

Loved this book. A definite go-to resource/5. How to Tap a Maple Tree for Syrup & Sugar Production. In the spring, the sugar maple tree (Acer saccharum) does something magical. Starches that the tree has held in storage all winter begin to. Though maple syrup provides a decent amount of some minerals, especially manganese and zinc, keep in mind that it also packs plenty of sugar.

Maple syrup is about 2/3 sucrose, or table sugar. One of the best books out there that cover all aspects of maple. This book has chapters on History of Maple Syrup and Sugar Production, Maple Resource, Planning an Operation, Managing Maple Trees, Sap Production, Syrup Production, Syrup Filtration, Marketing and many more.

With over pages this book is full of wisdom. U.S. maple syrup production ranged from million gallons in to million gallons in 6. Production in the top 10 maple syrup states was valued at $ million () and $ million (). Vermont, New York and Maine produced 75 percent of the maple syrup volume, and about 70 percent of the value, from to To mark years of maple production, in February, Quebec’s maple federation, Producteurs et productrices acéricoles du Québec published a book on the history of maple sugaring and syrup making in Quebec titled Si l’érable m’était conté, – un siècle d’acériculture au Québec, which roughly translates in English to “If maple was told to me, – a.

Maple syrup is a natural forest food product and, for the most part, only produced in temperate North American woodlands. More specifically, the sugary sap is mostly collected from the sugar maple (Acer saccharum) which grows naturally in the northeastern United States and eastern Canada. Other maple species that can be "tapped" are red and Norway maple.

Exploring Maple Syrup LESSON DESCRIPTION Students will understand how maple syrup is made, and use their senses to analyze its qualities. GRADE LEVELS Pre-K through 5 OBJECTIVES Students will: 1.

Listen and read the book Sugar on Snow by Nan Parson Rossiter for literacy response involving comprehension on the process of making maple syrup. Why does maple syrup cost so much in the stores.

Because it’s a lot of work. Sugar maples have an average of about 2% sugar content. At that percentage, it takes 43 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup. Equipment for making maple syrup can be purchased online or at many local hardware stores. It’s springtime in New England—an important season for maple syrup production.

The maple syrup season is short, only lasting between four and six weeks. The flavor of syrup can change depending on when it is gathered during that time.1 The syrup is gathered by attaching buckets to trees with spouts sticking into the trees’ bark.

Then these buckets of syrup are taken to “sugar shacks. When maple sap is extracted from maple trees, such as the sugar maple (Acer saccharum), the typical sugar content is 2%–3% by mass (Ball,Randall,Extension et al., ).The sap is significantly more dilute than maple syrup, which contains a sugar content of approximately 68% (Stuckel and Low, ).A simple mass balance shows that to produce 1 kg of syrup.

According to the Cornell Sugar Maple Research & Extension Program, the aptly-namedSugar Maple lives up to its name and is generally said to have sap with higher sugar content, thereby producing better flavored syrup than other maple species. The United States is a major producer of maple syrup, with a total production volume of around million gallons of maple syrup in Maple syrup is harvested by inserting a tap into a maple.

Antioxidants – One of the big differences between sugar and maple syrup is that maple syrup has a good amount of minerals and antioxidants.

Here is a list of some of the nutrients in 1/3 cup of pure maple syrup: Calcium: 7% of the RDI (Recommended Daily Allowance), Potassium: 6% of the RDI, Iron: 7% of the RDI, Zinc: 28% of the RDI, Manganese. This book recounts the rise of the Cary Company and takes a closer look at who Cary was and the maple sugar and maple syrup empire that he created.

As encompassing as the Cary Empire was, it overreached its limits and came tumbling to the ground with the stunning bankruptcy and death of its leader in Reviews: 9.

Vermont, USA. A study done by the Vermont Maple Sugar Makers Association indicated that an average maple sugar producer in the state has 3, taps and produces 1, gallons.

However, only a small number has over 5, taps. This site presents ideas, current research, and new sources of information related to the history of the production and use of maple syrup and maple sugar in North America.

The purpose of this site is not to be the definitive account tracing the history of maple syrup and sugar, or telling the maple story, although at times it will share old.
