Wintertime in New Jersey. Neighborhood Maple Syrup Boil Down.

Sap from the Maple trees was running 6 weeks early this year. The Maple trees were tapped and the collection of sap started on New Years Day. Over 100 gallons of sap needs to be boiled down and concentrated to make 2 gallons of maple syrup.
