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...
