Can you tell what it is? :-)

We're boiling maple sap today to make syrup... Wish us luck! We don't have any maple trees on our property, but friends who are out of town this weekend invited us to take their sap and give it a shot.

Does anyone here tap trees and make syrup, or do you know anyone who does? We're looking forward to tasting "our own" syrup this weekend!

Friends of ours used to have a boiling party every year.  We would all take turns manning the fire and we would each go home with a bottle.

ive got tons of maples in the woods behind our house....someday I'll get to it

I had no idea what that was until you told me, lol.  I've never done this and don't know anyone that does.  It's pretty cool though.
I've got chili in the crockpot right now.

We're trying to get these friends to have a Maine Maple Sunday party... Maybe with maple snow cones for the kids! ;-)

I wish we had trees to tap, but it's all oak and pine at our house. I just have to live vicariously through my friends for now.

It really could be anything, unless you can see the moss or bark in there. ;-) We have to filter it a few times.

Mmm, chili. It's a good day for it, I'm thinking about making soup this afternoon.

That's interesting and really cool.
It is a great day here for chili or soup.  What kind of soup?
I made entirely too much chili.  I'm going to have to freeze a lot of it, lol.
