We boiled enough [maple] sap to end up with a couple of pints [of syrup]. I started with 18-19 quarts of sap. I toss any ice buildup from my sap which I believe produces a more pure sap. Probably will do another boil tomorrow....Mmm. Buttery smooth. Had some over vanilla ice cream with walnuts last night.
Our grandmother (or rather our mémère, born in Quebec) used to pour hot maple syrup on snow, a real treat.
