There have been a lot of mentions about tapping birch trees and the uses for its sap in varying threads but I can't find a dedicated thread on the subject so I thought I would start one.
I've never tapped a tree or even tried any sap but I would really like to. None of my reading material goes into enough depth for me to be confident in tapping a tree, so I thought I would tap the wealth of knowledge here on BCUK before i go out and try.
So my questions to start with are;
How do I choose a tree to tap?
How do I tap a tree without harming it?
What kit do I need to tap the tree?
What can I do with the sap once I have it, how do I store it, any good recipes etc?
over to you guys J*
