There is something undeniably "Little House on the Prairie" about tapping your own trees for maple syrup, and homemade maple syrup fresh from the kitchen is so profoundly tastier than the abominable maple-flavored corn syrup impostors known as "pancake syrup."

Perfect for the pancake-loving DIY'er, this maple sugaring kit makes tapping not as daunting as it may seem. Plus, it's environmentally sound and doesn't affect the health of the trees. (Tap My Tree's Maple Sugaring Starter Kit with Aluminum Buckets, $110)
