How did that legend affect the process that we use today for maple syruping?
And I will teach you all of the ways.
That legend had many effects on today's maple syruping!
One way it helped is, that when Jimmy put his axe in the tree he only put in about 1 and a half inches in the tree and today when we tap a tree we only tap it about 1 and a half inches!
Another way that the legend helped is that the season that the legend was in is mid February to mid March and that is when you usually tap a maple tree today.
And one of the last ways it helped is when her stew was full in the beginning the sap was up to the top and when the stew was done there was just a little sap left and that was syrup and that is how we know that a lot of sap when boiled down will only make a little syrup.
