Maple sugar has a great history. Native Americans were the first to learn of the sweet sap inside the maple tree. Early settlers learned about sugar maples from Native Americans. Maple became a popular sweetener in colonial New England.
Sap runs out of maple trees on days when daytime temperatures are around 40 degrees following nighttime temperatures below freezing. It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup because sap is about 98% water. Sugar is made when the syrup is heated further, turning it into crystallized sugar granules.
