Maple syrup & banner


Well, the sap is done dripping & boiled down and I am enjoying a sinfully wonderful pancake with the pure maple syrup.  Very cool - I do like it and I will do more of it next year.  We got about 6/7 gallons of sap from one tap on one large tree.  It boiled down to a diners syrup jar full and what you see in the photo.  Yum!




I finished the Ithaca Children's School banner for a large building down town - it will be 4'x8'.  Its to advertise *Now Enrolling*.  How do you like it?  I'll take a picture of it when its hanging.

We've had some good syrup as well. Our last batch turned out cloudy and dark--I guess we'll use it when making granola.

Way to go! 6 gallons is awesome. This is our first year making I have a few posts about it. I need a sugar shack though we cooked on the open fire and it has a smokey taste.

I have a yummy white bean & thyme waffle recipe if you want it.
