Carbondale hosts maple syrup making workshops | Arts & Culture
CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - The City of Carbondale will host two Maple Syrup Making Workshops at Cedar Lake on Saturday, February 9 at 10 a.m. and at 2 p.m.
Participants will learn tree identification, tree tapping and evaporating techniques. The tricky aspects of finishing off syrup and even making candy will also be covered.
Folklore about this historic past-time will be woven throughout this naturally wholesome experience.
The City says activity will culminate with a sweet sample of the finished maple syrup product. It will take place at the Cedar Lake Supervisor’s Shop and office, 1705 Cedar Creek Road.
The event, which is geared toward people of all ages, is free and open to the public.
Space is limited however, so advanced registration is required. Please call John at 618-549-8441 for more information or to register.
