sap's up

When the temperature climbs above freezing during the day and drops below freezing at night the sap begins to rise in the maple trees. This sap is gathered in buckets and brought to a sugarhouse where the majority of the moisture is boiled off leaving the most divine pancake topping known to mankind.

Can you buy this divine stuff in the stores...or do you just have to be lucky enough to live where you live?

Sounds absolutely delicious!
