in natural expressions we are collecting sap to make maple syrup. in class it toke up to two weeks to make maple syrup. we made pancakes with the maple syrup that me made in class. it was fun making pancakes with what i made during natural expressions. to collect maple syrup we have to go to a tree where there’s a lot of sap in the tree and first drill a hole into the tree then put a tube inside the tree and wait awhile until the sap is collected we then fill up the bucket and take it back to our school. we then use the sap to make maple syrup and use it for cooking, baking and to give to people as gifts. According to them, it charges energy and makes you concentrate on the events around you.
my favorite thing about maple syrup was when we made pancakes and put maple syrup on top of the pancakes to make it more better and taste good. One of my favorite things doing was walking down to collect maple syrup.
