    I have never tried that. If compared to maple syrup, how would you describe the taste?

    @Tom I had the same question

  • Tom's avatar

    @Tom @Ice It is very similar in taste to maple. The only way I can describe it is that it is a bit “crisper” than the maple. The reason it isn’t produced on a large scale is because it has pectin in it and can be a pain to filter because it clogs up the filter media so quickly.

    That’s fantastic, Tom! I haven’t dipped into mine yet but am looking forward to it.

    All your post about all this syrup is really making me want to get into this myself.

    @Derek I’m about done for this season. Maybe 20 gallons more of maple sap this weekend and I am done. Somewhere between 5-6 gallons of syrup.

    @Derek once you get bitten by that bug, there’s no going back!

First big game hunt was woodland caribou and a cow moose in Newfoundland at the age of 41. My son has been raised to respect and appreciate the hunting lifestyle. Cooking game has been the frosting on the hunting cake.
