That’s Right! We just finished boiling down our second batch of Maple Syrup! If you like Grade A Light Amber or just want some hand crafted Upstate Syrup, come by the Center for Natural Sciences at Ithaca College. The 8.5 ounce bottles are $15, and the 3.4 ounce bottles are $8.
We spent all of Sunday straight through to Monday morning out at our Sugarbush boiling down over 200 gallons of Maple Sap! Splitting wood and feeding the fires kept us warm through the chilly night.
Today we boiled indoors in our lab to control the process and ensure the highest quality of syrup. With a few students working on the sap at any give time throughout the day due to our college course-load, the lab was alive and well with activity. Requiring constant vigilance with whisking off the foam that rises during the boil, some of us enjoyed sugar rushes throughout the day. After a few hours of boiling, whisking, and filtering, we bottled and labeled the Grade A Goodness.
As always, thanks go to the trees for their delicious sap!
