Guess what happens when you boil maple sap too long...
(I'm sure some of you know the answer!)
You get maple sugar!!
Yep, I'm not entirely certain where I went wrong, but my last batch of maple sap went past the syrup stage and firmly into the candy stage - this stuff was SOLID! I had to microwave it to loosen it up enough to chip it out of the bowl.
It was a very yummy mistake, though. I'll try it in my coffee tomorrow morning.
And maybe I should find the candy thermometer before I boil more sap...
