Well after a week of running and a freeze on the way we collected 95 percent of the buckets (about 850 litres all together I think, and boiled over the weekend. Lots of guests came and went, some very late nights at the shack, some awesome food and Sunday afternoon we wound up with our first batch of 20 litres of very dark, very thick syrup!
Made some taffy for the kids, ate some amazing crepes and syrup, and generally couldn’t keep the smiles off our faces!!!
Our new finishing stove is in place and much more safe and there was no shortage of help throughout the weekend, although the boys sure do like to burn my cordwood!
Here are a few slideshows and videos!
