moments in focus…

Maple Syrup anyone ?

New place, new experiences… Since our move to Western Maryland we have had so many different opportunities presented to us.  One of which was collecting Maple sap and making syrup.  First we collected all the sap, which is really like water, from buckets that hung from nails on the Maple trees, then we filtered it, boiled it, filtered it again… and voila… syrup.  Sounds simple, and it is, but it takes a long long time to reduce the sap to create the syrup.  Grab a cool beverage, feed the fire and wait.
