How to Make Maple Syrup in Stardew Valley

The first thing you’re going to need to make Maple Syrup is a Tapper, a piece of refining equipment you can place on various trees to extract their sap. There are currently two types of Tappers in Stardew Valley and both of them can only be obtained via crafting.

To craft a basic Tapper, you’ll first need to reach Foraging Level 3 to unlock the required recipe. Once you have, gather 40 pieces of Wood and combine them with two Copper Bars to make the Tapper.

There’s also a Heavy Tapper that works twice as fast as the normal version but crafting this one requires 30 pieces of Hardwood along with a Radioactive Bar. In addition, you’ll need to buy the recipe from Qi’s Walnut Room for 20 Qi Gems.

Once you have a Tapper you just need to place it on a Maple Tree to make Maple Syrup. It normally takes the Tapper nine days to collect the syrup but you only need to wait half as long if you’re using a Heavy Tapper.

Maple Syrup has quite a few uses in Stardew Valley. For one, you can combine it with Sugar and Wheat Flour to create Maple Bars. You can also combine it with Wood, Coal, and an Iron Bar to craft a Bee House.

Maple Syrup is a Tailoring ingredient as well, allowing you to make Floppy Beanies when combined with Oak Resin and Pine Tar. Finally, the sticky substance is needed for the Chef’s Bundle and the Exotic Foraging Bundle.
