About Maple Syrup Production


Many people don't know much about 100% pure maple syrup.  Here are some interesting facts to improve your maple syrup IQ.


How much sap can you get from a maple tree?

Most trees today have only one tap; only those with an 80-inch or greater circumference generally get two taps. On average, a tapped maple will produce 10 to 20 gallons of sap per tap. And as long as a tree remains healthy, it should continue to produce sap for years if not decades.


How much sap does it take to make maple syrup?

The general rule of thumb is that it takes 40 parts maple sap to produce 1 part maple syrup. This translates into 40 gallons of sap to produce 1 gallon or syrup (or 10 gallons of sap for one quart of syrup). This estimate is dependent on the sugar content of your sap.


Does maple syrup ever spoil?

Maple syrup does have a shelf life once opened.  100% pure maple syrup should keep for a year unopened in the pantry, a year opened in the refrigerator, and indefinitely in the freezer.
