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.

  1. OH NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! I’m not happy either. Your maple syrup is the most scrumptious stuff I’ve eaten today…other than a rotisserie chicken, which was also yours, YUM! Well, chin up. You can use our other propane tank if there’s anything left to burn, DOH, I mean boil.

  2. I don’t care about the bucket as long as you don’t burn my syrup.

    See you guys on Sunday. Let me know how much I owe for the girl scout cookies.
