1. We only had pancakes 3 times last year . I have a half gallon of the syrup made yesterday. I am going to make some maple butter for toast in the mornings . And I just mixed two parts Stroh rum and one part maple syrup and it is really good.

    1. We took home 2L of the syrup in the last picture. That was the second cook. I think they said this process brings the sugar level up. I don’t think you could get it fresher than that. 🙂 It took 200 L of sap to make my 2L of syrup. And I was privileged to watch a family continue more than a century old tradition.

    1. Even the water formed by condensation coming off the evaporator had a sweet taste . The smoke look outside the building is most likely steam from the evaporator. Not a lot of smoke comes off a fire roaring with 2 foot logs. At least a wheel barrow every half hour.
