Mattoon, Ill., resident Greg Capps stirs a batch of sap in the process of boiling down as Ella Humes and Jerry Taylor, background, both of Mattoon, make sap spouts from branches during the annual "Sap Tappin'" event at Douglas-Hart Hature Center in Mattoon. Visitors to the event get to see how maple tree sap is made into syrup. (AP Photo/Journal Gazette, Ken Trevarthan)
