Despite the weather's best efforts we have been collecting sap like crazy! The last couple days we have gotten at least 10 gallons a day of sap. At this rate we will finish up with at least a couple gallons of syrup when the sapping season is over.
Homemade maple syrup makes the best everything! Pancakes, cupcakes, waffles, ice cream topping, it also goes very well on a spoon!
The sap is literally running out of the trees. We have to empty the sap bags every couple hours to make sure they don't overflow or fall off the tap. More sap cooking tonight and this week! Can't wait till our liquid gold is jarred and ready to make amazing food!
