Birch sap

Postby Inmar » Fri Feb 24, 2017 9:45 am

A good product...
Delicious and natural ...
You can find it only in the forest, and never - in the store ...
--------------------------------
It is necessary to follow the rules of the workpiece ..
Here, in Wikipedia misspelled
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birch_sap
:thumbdown:
============================

We have to do this:
1. Go into the forest at the end of March - early April
2 Select birch, it must be "thick"
----------------------------------
3. Now collect the juice ..
- Take 1-2 mm drill bit, drill a hole in the Andes stvoleyf at an altitude of not less than 1.5 m;
- Drilling depth - not more than 1,5 cm;
- Put the "trough" for draining birch juice in a jar;
- Close the gauze to fly did not get ...

Wait for 1 day ...

You collect about 2-3 liters of juice.

Then make sure to:
4. The hole in the birch should be closed "bee with pitch" ...
It is a natural substance that bees produce

Otherwise, birch die ..
===================================

Take the birch sap from birch trees - it is normal for the tree!

Been drinking birch sap for years, my kids grew up on it instead of soda, still drinking it. Good stuff and natural.

Does anyone know how long birch sap lasts? I generally drink mine quickly and have not bothered making syrup since I was a kid, but I have never tried storing it.

Permafrost, I store mine in quart freezer bags and put them in the freezer. I've had thawed them out as must as a year old and they tasted good, same with maple sap.

When I was a kid we would water bath can the syrup in jars, but I found I do not use it much as a adult and it has been like 25 years since I made any. I collect sap every year but generally I drink it as I collect it or mix it with whiskey in the evenings. I have thought about expanding how many trees I tap so I could have some all year, perhaps this year I'll do a few bags in the freezer and see how it goes.

I'm wondering what other trees can be tapped?
Would wild cherry sap be medicinal?
If I don't care about preserving a tree, what is the smallest maple I could tap and still get maximum sap? I have dozens upon dozens of "saplings" that I don't care to save.

My friend tapped his walnut trees to make syrup. IDK about THAT, but if he likes it......
My dad make maple syrup once when we were kids. Mmmmmm. I don't have sugar maples, but swamp maples are common here. One in my yard drizzles sap all over every year. Gets sap icicles, sapcicles, in cold weather.
P!

It's impossible..
:shakeno:
I grew up in the village, first in the USSR and then in Russia ..
------------------------------------
1. You can only store a "real"
2. Juice birch, maple can not be saved ...
==============================
That's all...
-------------
The man has not learned to save ...
Therefore, drink birch sap, until it just flows from birch

quite a few trees have sweet sap that can be tapped; as a child I would snap off branch tips on a silver maple during sap season. At night the sap would freeze into sweet icicles for a pleasant snack after sunset. When you are a kid you get your sweets wherever you can find them... :rolleyes:
New laws are like new taxes....both evolve, but they never go away.
