Process of Producing Maple Syrup
As stated in the introduction of this article, several steps are done in making maple syrup which starts with the natural process.
- A drill is used to tap maple trees and create a hole.
- Out of the hole made, a spile is placed inside after which drips of the maple tree sap begins to form.
- The maple tree sap can be collected in a bucket or placed in a tank.
- From the gallons of sap harvested, they are then placed in sugar house where it s poured into a maple sugar evaporator.
- In the maple sugar evaporator, the concentration or “boiling” of the sap into maple syrup is done. The steam which comes out of the evaporator pre-heats the sap.
- After the syrup becomes concentrated, it is placed into a container then filtration is done.
- During the filtration method, nitro or sugar sand is removed from the syrup.
- Finally, after filtration, the maple syrup is placed in bottles or any other containers.
