We finished up our first batch of syrup this week. I canned one and a half gallons and put about a pint into our open bottle in the refrigerator.
We have about a gallon of syrup that is about 80% finished still at the cabin and this week the trees should still be running so with some luck we will get around 4 gallons.
I think the results are going to be better as I had to boil off about a quart of water off from what I would have considered finished last year.
This year we also picked up a Maple Syrup Filter Cone which did help at reducing the maple sand in the finished product. Unfortunately I forgot to bring it back from the cabin so I did not get to run it through one last time before canning. On a couple of cans I used a cotton cloth but it clogged to quickly. But on the three jars I did use it on the results we very clear. For the next couple of gallons I won’t forget it.
