Good morning everyone. Here is the second (and final) installment of “Home Made Maple Syrup” from the global headquarters of Dog Slobber Productions. Here is a link to the first one, Tapping Maples, just in case you missed it or you can’t sleep. We had fun doing this off-the-cuff video about how we make syrup. Look ma, no script! It just goes to prove that even a windjammer captain can be taught to do simple tasks. Thanks to staff cinematographers¬†Jen and Katie. Thanks to the beautiful weather, in particular the cold nights and warm days that make the sap run and give us all the warm feeling of hope that gets us through mud season. Rest assured that no maples were irreparably harmed in the making of these videos.

Disclaimer 1: There other ways to collect and cook down your maple sap. This just happens to be how one highly untrained hack who can’t even perform his own stunts does it while his poor, long suffering wife and kids watch in head-shaking wonder.
Disclaimer B: Please, don’t don’t take his word for it. Go out there and give it a whack yourself and let the world know how you did.
