Reading about how to make your own maple syrup, courtesy of Carl Newman of indie-rock band The New Pornographers, kind of makes me want to buy a bucket and start drilling some trees. Newman moved from Brooklyn to an artist's colony in upstate New York last year, and decided to try his hand at tapping maple trees for their sweet sap a couple of months ago. Making your own maple syrup seems to take a lot of time and effort, such as buying special covered buckets, boiling the syrup down to its essence over a wood fire and straining the syrup through a coffee filter. Maybe I'll just stick to Aunt Jemima's. [via The Daily Swarm]
