So There’s That
We got about 3 gallons of maple sap over the course of 2 1/2 days. I filtered it, I boiled it a while, I put it in my crockpot. Then I didn’t know when to stop. Here’s what we got:
It’s a pretty color and it’s thickened up since it’s been in the fridge.
I mighta let it go too long. It’s kinda grainy, like it’s saturated w sugar. Sooooo…. maybe I can turn it in to that maple sugar candy like we get at the fall fairs (YUMM-O!)? Or it can sit in my fridge forever as I reminder that we could do it if we wanted to?
The sap was flowing again and we’ve got maybe another gallon and a half so far today… Try it again? Probably.
P.S. I just found this blog post by Simple Little Home and we are SO doing this.
