Homemade Maple Syrup

    Newer Older

    This is some of our finished maple syrup, you can see the two different colors from two batches of syrup. We ended up with a little over a gallon of home produced maple syrup. I think the sugaring season is over, with daytime temps in the 60's and the nights not even dipping close to freezing this week, the trees will bud out soon. I'm glad we started early this year, hopefully next year we'll have a longer season so we can get more syrup.

      I have wanted some Weck jars for a while. Do you like using them?

      I do like them, they're more expensive, but I love that the lids are glass (no BPA) and I love how beautiful they are. I have a few different shapes & sizes from small bottles & jars to the big bulby jars. One thing I really love about them is now beautiful they are for serving. When I bring out some homecanned beets or jams people are even more impressed because the jars are so lovely!
