    I'm liking the 250ml Glass Gallone Bottles with embossed leaf, at $1.35, plus caps. The shipping is a bit of a drag, but still cheaper than driving out up there to pick up.

    Thanks for the info. Yeah I only have about 12L to bottle. I was thinking maybe 36 250ml bottles for gifts, then I would just do the rest in mason jars.

    Yup, you got it... I think if I pull up spiles now and collect all my 4L jugs, I'll probably have more than enough sap. I can have a few bonfires over the next couple of nice days to try and reduce a...

    Looks like folks are pulling spiles and putting away their syrups for the season. Got back into my bush yesterday after an absence of 6 days. All my sap jugs were overflowing, I still can't decide if...

    Sap slowed some today, but still managed to grab about a dozen litres to bury in the snow for another day. Starting to see some sweet results. The jar on the right is from last night/todays boil and...

    Weird morning, woke up to being in a dark snow globe. So much for that nice spring day we had yesterday. I was expecting a sap flood yesterday, but just slow drips. Still managed to collect 13L for...

    Boiled down a big stock pot overnight, for a nice half jar of syrup. Guessing because it's so light and my taps are slow, the season is just getting started up here. Boiling down the next stock pot...
