Woo!

The only thing I've foraged for so far this year is birch sap.
Spring is slow in the north.

Do you make syrup or birch beer?

I've got a lot of maples. Someday, I may tap some of them.

Birch syrup. I've never made birch beer before, but tapping for syrup is so much work that I wouldn't want to tap more trees.

Two weeks of a few gallons of sap a day, and we got just under a litre of syrup to show for it. Birch is crazy.

Are you a lady without morels (or morals, or whatever pun)?

I've never had borch syrup. I think I've read that it's kinnda wintergreen-ish.?

Actually, I've never had birch beer, either.

Is it the regular paperbark birch?
