    Today it was perfect to tap the maple trees, so I tapped nine (thats all I ever need), once I collect 100 gallons of sap I’m done. Now my question is Birch syrup, Ive never had it so I dont know when to tap them, yield from the sap etc. I walk past alot of Yellow Birch to get to the maples. If anyone could help I’d appreciate it.

    BTW, thought I’d throw this in,
    Maple Rice Pudding

    Wash half a cup of rice and put in a pan with water just covering the rice, bringing it to a boil.
    Add 3 cups of milk; let it come to a scald and then cook slowly about medium heat.
    Cook for 2 hours, adding milk if thickening. When rice is cooked, turn heat up high for 1 minute and add the following:

    1 egg beaten
    vanilla
    half cup of maple syrup
    nutmeg or cinnamon or both. (BOTH is the best!)
