In the last post I mentioned that we were collecting sap from our maple trees.  Well, that proved quite successful last week, and we ended up with many gallons of sap by Saturday.  Since we had no more room ANYWHERE to store all that sap, we decided to boil it down into syrup.  Little did we know how LOOOOOONG that would take!  Because of our inexperience, we didn't start the process until the afternoon, and Chris was still manning the sap boiling late into the night.
When it was all said and done, we didn't have a lot to show for it, but what we did have was very, very tasty!! 
Looking forward to the weather warming up again, so we can do it all over again!!


  1. Please tell me that was a quart jar and not a pint?
