Maple Syrup Pt. 2

 Still boiling down outside for a little longer.
 We brought it in last evening and started to finish it off.
 Had to put it in 2 pans to begin with, but eventually move
it into one pan.
 Here it is in one pan and getting thicker and darker
and it tasted Oh So GOOD!
 Bubbling just a bit right before it reached temperature.
We strained it through cheesecloth and bottled it up.
We had one and a quarter quarts from last night.
Today it appears the trees are done producing sap.  Spring
seems to have come early.  I’m kinda bummed because I
wanted to get a gallon or so of the stuff this year. 😦
Next year we WILL tap trees in mid-February instead of early March!
