Sugaring time

After many months of anticipation sugaring time has arrived and for the past three days we have been collecting Maple sap and boiling it down to make Maple syrup. It is a very hard and time consuming effort as the sap to syrup ration is roughly 40-1, meaning that it takes 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup. Yes folks, a lot of sap.
Once we have made enough syrup to last a year and made some Maple sap wine we will turn our attention to the Birch tree's.
All go guys in a very tasty way.
