Maple Wrap-Up


– Our house no longer smells. Several hours of boiling a water/vinegar mixture and three Febreeze candles later, our house smells like it should.  Even better actually because the dog smell is currently masked.  I personally don’t smell that ever, but I would suspect others do. 

– All the sap has been boiled and we have a finished product.  80+ gallons of sap = about 19 small jars and 1 jug of dark, GOOD maple syrup.  Who wants waffles?

– The trees are untapped and all is set to be put away for the year. 

It took a long time and a lot of work (of which I’ll take some credit but in actuality, I did nothing…it was all Wade) and the final product is perfect.
