The Revised Syrup Process

I was up and lighting a fire this morning at seven o’clock.  I felt an urgency to begin the syrup making process early, as I had several gallons of sap that needed to be boiled down.  I am unsure how much liquid the turkey fryer pan holds, but it was full to capacity, along with a five gallon bucket.       

Here are photos from today.

            

This job was huge….my body is aching all over from lifting, bending, carrying!  Making syrup is not an easy task, that is for sure! But, oh, it is so sweet!!!
