Okay, so all day yesterday we were cooking down the maple syrup collected from the trees. I know most people do it outside but on the small scale it works to do some in the house on the stove. It smells soooo good. It is just that you have to be very careful with the last 5 minutes. Look away for a second and you have carbon. I can attest to this as I am still trying to figure out how to scrape the black off my hotel pan. Of course we had to go out and get some ice cream to have with the finished syrup. Yum! Let’s hope for cold nights and warm days to increase the production!
