Maple Syrup

We boiled sap all last weekend. We finally finished up the syrup and we have 12.5 pints of syrup! You need about 40 gallons of sap, to make one gallon of syrup.

Momma said to be very careful by the fire.  This year I got to help light it and I got to put wood in it for the first time.  I also got to skim the sap.

We probably won’t get anymore sap because it is best to do when the nights are freezing and the days are over freezing. It is too warm for it.

I am happy with how much syrup we got, but I would have liked more. Maybe next year.
