Dietzville.TV #004: Tour Our Sugar Camp — Where We Turn Maple Sap Into Syrup
I’m a little sad it’s over because it’s just been so. much. fun….
All good things must come to an end, I suppose. It’s the end of our first maple syruping season here in northeastern Minnesota.
We put our taps out on the first Saturday in March. Here we are, 6 weeks later, boiling about 140 gallons sap for the very last time.
Here’s a tour of our Sugar Camp — which is just a fun way of saying “here’s where we boil maple sap into syrup”!
All The Nourishing Things: Our Sugar Camp
We yielded almost 2 full gallons of syrup from this last batch — which is 6-1/2 gallons of pure, organic maple syrup for the whole season! Not bad for a $60 investment and time well spent hiking in the woods!
Although I’ve loved every minute of syruping (and I’m excited to do it again for years to come!), I’m ready for the snow to melt, the trees to bud, and the birds to sing again!
Worth Mentioning Again
