Resource:YouTube: Making Maple Syrup
Provider:The O'Brien Family
Summary:Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision). Did you know that National Maple Syrup Day comes right in the middle of the holiday season? It's on Monday, December 17th.
Description:This is a terrific video (shown in two parts on YouTube.com) on the process of making maple syrup from sap to syrup. What's wonderful is that this depicts the multi-generational O'Brien family of Wisconsin demonstrating their maple syrup business.

This "amateur" video (shot and narrated by an O'Brien family member) is instructional covering selecting the right spot to tap a maple tree, how to use duct tape to keep the squirrels away, the equipment that's needed, collecting the sap, and filtering and cooking the sap. The first video takes a little less than 10 minutes to watch.

When it's through, look over on the right side of the screen for the menu under "Related Videos." The first item on the menu is "Making Maple Syrup Part II." Click on it to watch and learn about the evaporation process, cleansing, testing sugar density, canning, work schedules, the maple sap tapping season, and cooking with the finished product. The second video is almost a full 10 minutes.
