how syrup is made
Tapping the trees
The first thing we do every year is tap the trees. We put 1-3 taps in a tree. The lines run to a large bucket for us to collect.
Making the syrup
When we bring the sap to the "Dragons Layer" we run it through the reverse osmosis system, then let the dragon drink the sap to the "maple dragon" (evaporator). After the sap turns into syrup in the evaporator, we filter out the syrup using filters in food grade 5 gallon buckets. Then we reheat the syrup and bottle it to become the tasty dragon made syrup you know today.
