Looks like sycamore syrup may be on the agenda for next year also.

Sycamore. Isn't that in the maple family? Should be very cool!

A majestic tree in my opinion. They can reach incredible size. I planted a bunch of saplings. Maybe my great great great grand children will enjoy the giants after I am long gone. I planted sweet gum mixed in with them for the same reason.

Bill got to draw the line there- sweet gum? That is a worthless tree down here. And them gumballs, hard on the bare feet

Where I planted the sweet gum at my place can flood so I was looking for a tree that can take standing water that won't kick the bucket.

Cool shot!

Esshup, you teach that dog to collect full sap buckets off the trees and bring them to the sugarhouse, and I've got a business proposition for you.....

Tony, she's getting there. Kate delivered our Indiana Maple Syrup yesterday. She must have done it, because the wrapping was too good for esshup to have done it.

Our syrup season was short too, A little over 3 weeks. It started off very weak also. I still managed to crank out 2.5 gallons though since it flowed like crazy for a few days on the weekend.

Sort of glad its over, I forgot how much work it was, and almost burned the house down when I forgot a pot on the stove and went to the movies. Thank God for neighbors! I have since moved outdoors until the last stage of finishing.

Remember those carbon "snakes" you could light as a firework? That was the pot on the stove. Stunk something awful. Took a LOT of elbow grease to clean the pot back out.

sprkplug and I did a little trade out and he sent me some his syrup.

I must say it is thicker and richer than the store bought pure maple syrup. It truley is quality stuff and the taste is outstanding!

He sent me a sample bottle of the Black Walnut syrup too. I have been instructed from my wife Emily to secure some more syrup, she is totally hooked on it.

The datil pepper jelly/sauce that I traded Bobby for is out of this world. My oldest just sits down with the jar and a spoon! Delicious!

Thanks again Bobby!

Some of my family are here visiting so I finally had the special occasion I've been waiting for to open my bottle of Sparkie's maple magic. What can I say.....AWESOME! The syrup was a huge hit and enjoyed by all.....I quickly capped the bottle and hid it in the fridge for my future private enjoyment! grin

....I am waiting for a cold winter morning to try the walnut on my wife's signature french toast. Never thought I would look forward to winter!!

I've been keeping my syrup hidden away waiting for the first brisk Fall day of 2015 to enjoy. Couldn't wait any longer, enjoyed some flapjacks yesterday morning. Simply amazing Tony - very grateful - thank you!
