    Maple Syrup!!!

    Been busy with work, my daughter and just everything. I haven't been out in the woods for way too long! So I decided to tap the big Manitoba Maple in the back yard. I bet you'd need 3 people to wrap their arms around this tree to touch each other. Shes a big one.

    I tapped the tree with 5 spigots (18" dia for each one is suggested) attached some 5 gal pails and the sap wouldn't stop running! From this tree alone i roughed it out to getting 320L of sap which boils down to 8L of syrup final product.

    I'm pretty happy with the results! I have had quite a few people offer to buy some off me but I've been giving it away. I highly suggest everyone giving it a try. It got me out of the house into some less desirable weather but now my coffee has a maple sweet taste to it, and french toast is even better!

    Good job jon. I didn't think a manitoba maple would produce very good maple syrup. Learn something new everyday.
    Save a little for me.
