It's that time of year! And that looks like a very large sugar shack!
Does the sap itself taste sweet? Always wondered...
Yum, maple syrup! :)
This is the roof of the Fortune Farms sugar shack in the Lanark highlands, a commercial operation with a state-of-the-art reverse osmosis evaporator. I just love the way the sun hits the stacks and the green tin roof on a sunny day when syrup is being made. Maple sap is sweet when it emerges from the tree in late spring - the evaporation process removes most of the water leaving a highly concentrated and much sweeter syrup. Absolutely heavenly stuff!
