|Our first batch! 6 sealed jars, and a "dregs"jar for us to use now. It was the last of the syrup and i squeezed the filter to get every bit possible.|
|Getting the boil going.|
|Jars And lids. I will sterilize these while the syrup boils.|
|My filter. This is a clean 100%cotton, lint free flour sack towel.|
|Almost there. The syrup has to reach 220 degrees.|
|Finished syrup in the filter.|
So thats the first fruits of labor. It is pretty darn cool to harvest this great natural resource from our property. I am hoping to
finish off the rest of what I boiled yesterday. Two or three more batches this size.
