Boiled Friday. Made syrup. Quick boil because there wasn't much sap overnight. Had to clean it up because of cold temperatures coming Friday night. It would have frozen in the tank. Not the end of the world, but not great for the next boil as it would make it a bit tricky.
So we have fresh maple syrup in our coffee this morning. And sickness in the house, as per usual at the start of sugar season. Juggling family, the need to finish tapping, the tours booked at the restaurant today. All part of the sugar season.
Today's the first all-day sugar-on-snow. Maggie will be there boiling and pouring the sticky goodness on crushed ice. Derek will be learning. Say hello them!
