Introduction to Bigleaf Maple Sugaring webinar offered
January 6, 2022
Bigleaf maple syrup is delicious with a unique flavor that is arguably better than the syrup produced from sugar maples in the northeast. Hobbyists have been producing bigleaf maple syrup for years for personal enjoyment, and this high-value syrup is just starting to be produced commercially to meet demand from consumers, including high-end restaurants.
In this introductory webinar for beginners,WSU Extension will explain the basics of bigleaf maple syrup production at the hobbyist scale, including equipment needed, weather and site conditions, tapping and sap collection, and boiling off the water and finishing the syrup.
The webinar will be offered twice: 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 6-7 p.m on January 12. The webinar is free, but pre-registration is required. Registration closes 24 hours before the webinar.
