Sugarin' Time

A week of collecting sap yields 14 gallons of sap.

Buckets of sap are stored in a snow bank until ready for the boil.

The boiler, or evaporator, is ready to go.

We have lots of fire wood.

Let's fire up the boiler!

And steam

Make one small batch of pure maple syrup!
Fourteen gallons of sap produced 38oz. of maple syrup.
Another arctic blast is headed our way which will halt the sap flow,
but we'll be back boiling when it departs.
