It’s That Time of Year Agian – Part 4

Just when we thought Spring was around the corner, Winter returned.  No sap has been flowing for the last two weeks.  We had 14+ inches of snow during that time and only recently has the temperature warmed up enough to begin collecting sap again.

We finished the boil we started several weeks ago:  Heat the concentrated sap to the right temperature,

the final boiling down

filter out the sediment that forms,

our sophisticated filtering system

bottle it and wait for the seals to pop.  It’s a pretty simple process with amazing sweet results.  From our initial 44 gallons of sap, we made almost 7 pints of liquid gold.  Yummm!

    Erin’s boyfriends family boiled 500 gallons this weekend. That’s a whole lot of sap!
