Finally, we boil!

The weather is gorgeous, the kidlets are stomping in their mud boots, the sweet water is boiling. If I didn't know better, I'd swear spring weather has finally hit the UP!


  1. Love it, season is over here in New Brunswick. Had a total of 9 liters from 8 taps.

  2. Nice! You are more advanced than us... only 4 taps this year (although that doubled our previous efforts). We'll see tomorrow how many jugs we get. The boil continues!

  3. Cool, this was my first year. What helped me was that I have a spare fridge in my garage that gets cold enough to freeze the water from the sap. I just throw away the blocks of ice that from. This leaves me with a high concentrate which requires far less boiling time. Good luck!
