As you’ve seen, two silver maple trees were tapped this year to try out the maple syrup process. Along with maple syrup comes the opportunity to cook the sap a little longer and create a maple candy. That’s exactly what we did this past Saturday. We took 4 gallons of sap and boiled it down to a few ounces, seen below, of maple sugar candy. Did you know you can take pure maple syrup and boil it even more to create a hardened Crystal sugar?
