    As we pour them, if the mix gets too stiff, we just put the pour pitcher (microwave safe) in the microwave and heat a little, then stir and resume pouring. The time needed depends on the qty to heat and the watts of your microwave, you will need to test that and learn on the go. We pour ours using a big plastic measuring cup, about 3-4 qts, but only fill it about 1/3 full each time to pour.
    Even the part that cools in the pan on the stove can be scraped out, put in that pour container, reheated, stirred and poured.

    Thanks for all the info, it will come in handy in the future, right now I'm not getting sap just to cold, hoping to get some before buds start popping. Hope the season hangs in there for a couple weeks anyway
