    Default Pan cleaning?

    What's the best way to clean the burnt sap from the pan?

    Vinegar and water. Heat and let it set overnight and scrub in the morning with a SS scrub pad.

    I agree, except not with a SS scrub pad, that will scratch the pan. Use a non-metallic scrub pad or a copper one, that is softer than the SS. If you scratch the pan, cleaning will be needed more frequently from then on.

    A piece of copper pipe with the pounded flat works good as a scraper.

    Sounds like someone, not naming any names here, just became one of those true sugarmakers! Mainly elbow grease or mechanical tools if it really gets bad. BTDT. I have seen some bad ones. Hope the pan is still ok.
    Keep boiling!
