A sign that there may eventually be an end to winter are the rows of buckets hanging from maple trees, challenging them to contribute their sap – yes, it is sugaring season again! It is also International Women’s Day today, which has been observed globally since the early 1900’s as a day to celebrate the achievements of women and promote gender equality.

How to Tap A Maple Tree
With the average price of maple syrup about $35 USD per gallon, it’s not a cheap commodity. Knowing how to tap a maple tree – should you have one close by – and make your own is a great cost saver, as well as a fun skill to have.
What To Listen To
The Maple Boom
Many people only think of maple syrup at the breakfast table, when they're facing down a stack of hot, fluffy pancakes or some French toast. They're missing out. Maple is undergoing a major boom, newly ascendant in beverage aisles, Asian kitchens, and even biomedical research laboratories. In this episode, we visit sugar shacks and talk to the experts to find out why tree sap is so hot right now—and whether it can live up to the hype.
What To Watch
Lighter Than Fancy - Spencer Lewis
After you draw off a batch of maple syrup, there is a process to determine its grade. After being filtered, it goes into an empty test jar belonging to a test kit containing 3 other jars filled with different shades of an amber colored liquid, each one representing the other grades: Fancy, Light Amber, Dark Amber and B. When the syrup in the test jar is lighter than the jar that reads fancy, then of course it's Lighter Than Fancy.
Place popcorn and pecans in a large bowl; set aside. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, maple syrup, corn syrup and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 300° (hard-crack stage). Remove from the heat; stir in maple flavoring. Quickly pour over popcorn mixture and mix well.
Transfer to baking sheets lined with waxed paper to cool. Break into clusters. Store in airtight containers
