Maple syrup is made from the sap of maple trees. These trees store starch in their trunks and roots before winter months. The starch is then converted to sugar that rises in the sap in early spring. Maple trees are tapped by drilling holes into their trunks and collecting the flowing sap. The sap is then processed by heating to evaporate much of the water, leaving the concentrated syrup left to enjoy.
