"Here's where it starts, collecting the sap from the maple trees. We had about 65 trees tapped in total."
"On a good day, we would collect about 45 gallons of sap from all the trees. The chunks of ice are the ones that froze overnight in the pails on the trees."
"Boiling all the sap on this fire pit. The pan holds about 75 gallons."
"Once it boiled down and water continued to evaporate, we added more sap to the large pan."
"Boiling off the water!"
"This is what over 250 gallons of sap looks like when most of the water has been boiled off. About 5 gallons left."
"Filtering the syrup through a felt funnel."
"After it goes through the filter we poured it into sterilized bottles."
