Maple Syrup Success!

We did it! This weekend we boiled down some of our sap.

So far, we have around 15 gallons between our two large maples.

We boiled down about a gallon or two and got around a pint. Our syrup has a definite maple flavor, but it has slight notes of honey. We're thinking is due to the fact that we tapped a Red Maple as opposed to a Sugar Maple. But it's delicious!

My brother, niece and nephew came over to watch the fun. They stayed the night and we had pancakes and homemade breakfast sausage the next morning with our syrup.
