Maple Sap to Syrup Ratios
My Maple syruping season is finished and my final totals bear out a 26.3 to 1 ratio.
I am curious what other Minnesota folks have been getting regarding their sap to syrup ratios, and would really like to see some numbers posted here.
Out of pure curiosity I made maple sugar for my first time. The process is very interesting, rather straightforward, fun, and somewhat dangerous (I suffered several burns that prove this). I processed small test batches, and was quite successful with consistent results. The ratio was 1.5 quarts of syrup made approximately 1 dry quart of sugar, or approximately 1.5 pounds. Nice to know I have an on-site source for making my own granulated sugar should the need ever arise.
Have a good one.
