couple shots

I haven’t been able to get out shooting much lately. I have started making maple syrup and it has taken what I had left for my free time and turned it into work. The results have tasted fantastic though.

The results.

Wow! Good for you. My maple tree is just oozing with sap this year, so it crossed my mind. I looked out one cold morning and there was an icicle hanging from the tree. I couldn't figure out what caused it, until it started dripping again later in the day. I stuck a bucket under the drip, but didn't give in to the impulse yet. My 6 year-old grandson and I just finished making three batches of mulberry jelly instead from the berries we picked and froze last summer.

Mmmmm, maple syrup! There's a woman just down the road from us at the lake cabin who spends the spring tapping the threes and boiling down maple syrup in a huge cauldron on an outside fire.

Nice shots, Dave.

What makes them different colors?

I am not sure what causes the difference in color. I think the lighter stuff is supposed to be a better grade and might have a better sugar content…. less boiling time to turn it darker?
