How to make homemade maple syrup for your family

Maple syrup is a great source of vitamin C, protein and calcium.

Here’s how to make your own!

1.

Make a maple syrup recipe The first step is to get the maple syrup out of the refrigerator.

You can make maple syrup in the microwave.

It won’t make the best maple syrup, but it will give it the consistency you want.

The maple syrup you make from the microwave will have the same consistency.

If you make it in a blender, you can blend it all together.

This recipe is a good source of maple flavouring.

2.

Chop up the syrup The next step is chopping the syrup.

Chop into chunks or cubes.

The more pieces of maple you have, the more maple flavour the syrup will have.

3.

Chop the leaves Make sure you chop your maple syrup into small pieces.

The longer you chop, the smoother the maple flavour will be. 4.

Place the pieces in a large bowl or container.

This will keep them from clumping together and making the syrup too thick.

5.

Put the maple on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.

6.

Put your frozen maple syrup (or other flavour-enhancing maple syrup) into the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

This is a critical step.

You want it to be room temperature, but still be in the refrigerator to keep the syrup from curdling.

7.

Taste your maple If you use a blender or a food processor, you should be able to taste the maple maple syrup.

If not, try using a hand-held food processor.

If the maple isn’t completely smooth, use a spoon or spatula to get it smooth.

8.

Let the maple cool Let the syrup thaw.

It will begin to lose its sweetness.

Once it’s thawed, pour it into a bowl or bowl liner.

The syrup will look a little like a pancake.

You should see a little bit of maple in the centre of the syrup and you should see some chunks of maple.

9.

Pour your syrup in a glass bowl Pour the syrup into a glass jar.

The liquid inside should be around 4 cups.

It should taste slightly thick.

If it doesn’t taste thick, add more maple syrup or another flavour-boosting maple syrup to the jar.

10.

Enjoy!

Maple syrup will keep for a month or two.

Keep it in the fridge, but make sure you let it cool completely before drinking.
