Sinzibuckwud.. (lit. Drawn from Trees)

This is the result of many hours of work and many cups of "Sweet Water" being boiled down. The term Sizibuckwud was the Native American word for the sap of the maple tree. The Europeans translated the term to "Sweet Water" and learned how and when to tap the trees. The primary product the Indians and Europeans made was Maple Sugar since it was easy to transport and lasted longer.

I am still collecting sap and boiling it down but so far I have 4 1/2 pints of the sweet syrup.
