    Default First boil

    We're going to have out first boil today.
    The sugar is 2.8 off the road and 2.4 in the woods. We over 2600 gallons of sap yesterday. A great start to the season.
    Over 100 years of family syrup making, still learning

    I think I had my last boil last night down a the Ohio state line. Sap looked better than I expected. The syrup tasted great but very dark and wanted to foam up pretty good. If I had sugar maples and the weather looked better I might keep going but its time to clean up. Sap ran good this year but the sugar content was down. The warm weather in southern Michigan didn't help either. Good luck to those further north that are still going.
