Stardew Valley Maple Syrup Crafting

Here we tell you how to become a Canadian……uh…. make some Maple Syrup. So the process is actually pretty similar to the realistic process which occurs. First, you need to search around for a Maple tree on your farm. It is usually one of the three types of trees growing on your farm.

Now onto the extraction process. For this, you will require a tapper. A tapper attaches to a tree and usually collects the residue flowing from the tree. To construct a tapper, you will have to reach Level 3 in foraging. You can level up your foraging level by gathering wild resources that are usually strewn around. It takes 40 wood and 2 copper bars to craft. There is even a higher level of the tapper called a heavy tapper. This works twice as fast as a regular tapper and its recipe can be purchased from Mr. Qi on Ginger Island for 20 Qi Gems.

The extraction process takes around 9 days for each tree. You can place tappers on multiple trees at once so that you can collect them in bulk and store it up. You can even place tappers on trees you find in the wild but unfortunately not the ones in the town.

Maple syrup is sold for 200g. It is also an important gift for many of the residents and is a ‘liked’ gift. It is also needed to complete some tasks in the Community Center. It is most importantly used in making the Bee House. The only bad thing is that you can’t eat it with pancakes which makes the earlier punchlines pretty much redundant and is a huge missed opportunity in my eyes.
