TPB-DrillingSpile

Tim Burton drills a hole into a maple tree and readies to insert a “spile” to tap the syrup.

Today on this week’s episode of Food Makers, a Google+ hangout on air, I’ll be talking to Tim Burton, owner of Burton’s Maplewood Farm in Medora, Ind. In New England and America’s upper Midwest, the sap is starting to flow in maple trees and that means sugaring season is near. Tim will talk about the craft of maple syrup, the tools of the trade, his sought-after barrel aged syrup, and the upcoming National Maple Syrup Festival in Medora. Sounds sweet, doesn’t it? Tune in right here at 2pm PST and 5pm EST.
