I just burned a pot of boiling sap. Left it too long without checking in on it. Five minutes earlier and I could have caught it. Instead I found a 4 gallon pot of carbon. Fuck. I blame the Darjeeling Limited.
So now I smell like flaming sugar and I can never boil sap in that pot again (no Kev, it was mine, not yours). I’m just glad that earlier in the evening I poured the fruits of the week’s boiling into a holding bucket. I hope the other pot didn’t catch any off flavors.
Not happy right now.
